ANCS Girls on the Run

Congratulations to the ANCS Girls on the Run team on completing their first 5K race this past Saturday! The race started at Cheney Stadium at Phoenix Park and traveled 3.1 miles through Georgia Ave, Capitol Ave, Memorial Dr  and Cherokee Ave. We are so proud of the girls’ hard work and thankful for our parent and community coaches. A special thanks to Coach Daniel and all the ANCS administration and after school staff who encouraged and supported the team.  Even though our season has ended, the girls are still finishing a community project through December 15th. Please see donation info below.


As you may know, Lifeline Animal Project of Fulton County is currently facing a significant challenge. With over 300 dogs in the Fulton County Shelter and an additional 90 dogs at the Lifeline Midtown location due to overflow, the need for support is urgent. The Midtown overflow adoption center is set to close on November 30th, and the team is working diligently to find fosters and adopters for these dogs as they prepare for the overflow shelter’s new location.

While fostering or adopting a dog would be incredibly impactful, especially over the holidays, we understand that this may not be feasible for everyone. That’s why we’re excited to announce that our Girls on the Run team will be collecting donations for the shelter as part of our Community Impact Project.

Here’s how you can help:

1. **Everyday Items**: Lifeline has a constant need for various items, including dog and cat beds, food, treats, collars, crates, cat litter, blankets, towels, office supplies, cleaning items, and more. A detailed list can be found here. We have set up donation bins by the Community News Board near the front desk.  Donations will be accepted from November 29 to December 15.

2. **Cash Donations**: Lifeline greatly appreciates cash donations, as they provide the flexibility to meet changing needs. Feel free to Note ANCS GOTR Community Impact Project when making your donation.

3. **Amazon Wish List**: Lifeline also has an Amazon Wish List for their Fulton County location. Purchasing items from this list ensures direct delivery to the shelter. Feel free to Note ANCS GOTR Community Impact Project when making your donation.

Your support is invaluable in improving the quality of life for these animals. We look forward to making a significant difference together!
