CIS of Coweta County's Jessie Foreman, at left, visits with Natalie Bacho during her March 29 visit to East Coweta High School, where the CIS program has been a grateful recipient of the Abby's Closet program that provides school supplies for students who need them.
We were so pleased to join the juniors and seniors at East Coweta High School on March 29 as they—and school teachers and administrators—welcomed Natalie Bacho to EC.
Natalie shared the story of her daughter, Abby, who passed away on Christmas Day of 2012, three days after the car carrying Abby and her family was struck by a distracted teen driver.
To honor Abby, her family started the Abby’s Angels Foundation. The foundation’s goal is to encourage and inspire students in need by providing school supplies through the Abby’s Closet program while spreading education and awareness about the importance of safe teen driving.
The Abby’s Closet program at East Coweta provides school supplies for students and some “fun, funky stuff too.”
There are now 25 Abby’s Closet programs serving students in Georgia, Alabama and West Virginia. This program has been a blessing to the CIS program at East Coweta, and we will always be thankful for the support of Abby's Closet and The Abby’s Angels Foundation.
