Welcome to the Castle!!!
Norton PTA is currently evaluating planned Spring activities in the light of COVID-19 and school closings. Thank you for your patience and understanding! We will communicate as we know more.
We also wanted to share the below information from the Allen Council of PTAs:
We are beyond proud of the support and love our District is providing all children (ages 1-18) with weekday breakfast and lunch. Please encourage anyone you know who needs a meal for their child to utilize this program. Again, you do need to bring your child(ren) with you, but no information is required to receive the food. This is for ALL children in Allen, ages 1-18. Click here for details on pick up location and times.
While we all want to be able to support our District with monetary, food and volunteer donations, unfortunately, the District is unable to accept these types of donations. So, what can we do?
Fortunately, our community has a wonderful support organization that is set up to help. Allen Community Outreach (ACO) has transitioned all support to focus 100% on emergency support. They offer two primary services: financial and food.
- Financial Services: Financial support to help those in need with rent, utilities, etc.
There are limited qualifications to receive this help. ACO is focused on helping families stay in their homes during this challenging time. For utilities, you must be a TXU or CoServ customer. If you need assistance, please contact ACO directly by visiting their website, www.ACOCares.org.
- Food Pantry: Distribution style effort to provide food in a grab-and-go environment. You must be a resident of Collin County to benefit from ACO’s food pantry.
While there are many things we can do, we encourage you to make a donation (monetary or food) to ACO, or any other food bank of your choice. This is the best option for families in Allen, and the surrounding areas, to supplement the breakfast and lunch support from the District. Please visit www.ACOCares.org to make a donation or click here for a list of most-needed food items that can be dropped off.
