NAN Newton County Chapter
AN NEWTON COUNTY'S VISION
NAN’s goal is to apply for grants to provide scholarships to high school seniors for tuition, fees, books, supplies to individuals needing financial help in Newton County. With the grant funds NAN would like to distribute $500 to $1,000 Scholarships to each student with a 2.5 GPA.
Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits.
Educational STEM is science, technology, engineering, and math. These are all areas of learning that our children need to be comfortable with to excel in the future. STEM makes creators, thinkers, problem solvers, doers, innovators, and inventors.
Students would be able to take advantage of the educational scholarships which is a good way to avoid student loans. Because education is a field of major importance.
The most obvious benefit of scholarships is that they make college more affordable. Scholarships can give students the financial bump needed to take a leap and enroll in a degree, as well as a boost to morale and a student’s confidence in their ability to work toward a better future.
Also, NAN’s goal is to use grant funds to pay for students and adults that dropped out of high school to get their GED (General Educational Development) diploma at a vocational school, college, or online classes.

Community Food Insecurity Project
NAN Newton County Chapter, Covington Georgia are requesting Grant to give back to our local community to help in the fight against “Food Insecurity.” We give complimentary Kroger $50,00 Gift Cards to the families to paid for nutritional foods or medication. We recognize that we cannot achieve our organizational goals on our own.
After a lifetime of hard work, many older Adults find themselves facing an impossible choice to pay for groceries, medical care, or medication. Children struggling with hunger come from families who are struggling, too. Household food insecurities is a threat to families well-being.
Food insecurity is defined as the disruption of food intake or eating patterns because of lack of money and other resources. Families experiencing food insecurity rely on donated food at food pantries to help them stretch their budgets.
