Cheerleader Community Service
During the first week in August, the Marist cheerleaders prepared for their upcoming football and basketball seasons and made time to serve the community.  For the 6th year, Marist cheerleaders collected layette items and used books for The Christ Child Society of Atlanta (CCS), which helps needy Atlanta children. Among other projects, CCS contributes 12 layettes per month to the Grant Park Clinic in Atlanta, which provides medical and prenatal care to those without health insurance.  A layette, which contains essential items for a newborn, is given to expectant mothers at the completion of their participation in a prenatal class.

The Cheerleaders also raised money for The Christ Child Society to help fund other projects.  Each cheerleader contributed an item included in the layette, and they worked together to assemble 35 layettes for expectant mothers.  In addition, over 350 gently used books will be distributed to various agencies from three metro counties:  Grant Park Clinic, My House, Grady Hospital, The Atlanta Day Shelter, and Another Chance/Open Gate.
