Crossroads Academy Donor Appreciation Picnic - March 2024

Jerry and Diego attended a donor appreciation picnic today at the Crossroads Academy Nix Campus. There were representatives from many groups, churches, clubs, and institutions in attendance. Before lunch, the academy staff lead tours through the facility explaining what the academy does for the kids that live there.


Academy founder, John Davidson, told the group about several things going on with Crossroads and thanked everyone for their support and donations. One of the boys also spoke to the group and thanked everyone as well. All staff and boys that were there were very appreciative of donor efforts.


A very tasty lunch cooked by staff and volunteers consisted of pulled pork, Jamaican jerk rubbed chicken legs, cheesy mac & cheese, salad, and cookies and brownies for dessert. Lunch was served by volunteers and several of the boys.
