Pittsboro, NC - For the fourth year, the student body at North Chatham School has partnered with the local Food Lion store to share civil rights concepts they have learned with shoppers. Food Lion donated over 800 paper bags this year for the students to create artwork on as they studied about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., civil rights, and diversity.

The bags were delivered to the store on Friday, January 15, to be used in bagging groceries over the MLK holiday.

“They look forward to being a part of the commemoration and their customers love to see the creations," said Alan Slavin, a third grade teacher at North Chatham and a project organizer, of the Food Lion partnership.
