As a result of the efforts of Joyce Long, instructional aide at Delta Opportunity School, who wrote a personal letter to CenturyLink, Delta Opportunity School’s Food for Thought program was awarded a $1,000 donation. Randy Krause, market development manager/public and media relations, received Long’s letter explaining the program and requesting a donation to be used toward a vehicle. He quickly followed up by visiting Delta Opportunity School and getting a tour of the school and Food for Thought service learning project. The staff and students of Delta Opportunity School have been using their personal vehicles for the past four years to transport 160 backpacks of weekend food back and forth each week and to pick up food purchased from Walmart and the two tons of food collected in the food drive. Although CenturyLink could not provide a vehicle, they were so sold on the program that the $1,000 donation is just the start of a collaborative relationship for continued and increasing donations to support the sustainability of the Food for Thought program.
