Mathew 25:40 - The King will reply and say unto them, “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

Sandhills Student Assistance, Inc. (SSA) was founded in 2016 to address the urgent problems of Moore County children who arrive at school hungry, without adequate clothing, or having an immediate need. With the help of Moore County school teachers and administrators, SSA works with local churches and organizations to fill these needs in a discrete and caring way, respectful of the sensitivity, self-awareness and vulnerability of students at risk.

The specific objectives and purpose of this organization are:

  • to provide portable snack food at the school to hungry and/or at-risk school children
  • to provide emergency clothing items to at risk children who arrive at school without adequate shoes, cold weather outer wear or other essential clothing
  • to provide other items such as hygiene products and emergency medicine to serve immediate needs of school children as identified by school personnel
  • to sponsor, host and/or participate in events and activities that promote the support of at risk children in public schools
