Cumberland Academy of Georgia, Inc., an Atlanta special needs school serving students with high-functioning Autism, Asperger’s, LD, ADD and ADHD, recently welcomed Frito Lay/Atlanta West Zone employees. Eighteen employees arrived at the school and spent their day working along with students and staff members on several projects around the school. The group participated in painting the gym and other common areas and creating clean and refreshed spaces, which are highly trafficked and central to student activity.
“Our campus is well-used and our main areas were in need of some magic,” said Debbi Scarborough, Founder and Headmaster of Cumberland Academy of Georgia. “Frito Lay employees spent the day with us and made a positive impact not only on our facilities, but also on our students and staff members. We are very grateful to them for their generosity and huge commitment to our wonderful school.”
