Community Outreach


Bright Blessings Community Service



Antioch is partnering with Bright Blessings for a community service event at their Giving Village here in Matthews.  This event is an opportunity for students to participate in hands-on activities that directly benefit children in our community.  




Giving Gators

Antioch Elementary is proud to announce their Community Outreach Program called Giving Gators.  It is always important to teach our children the joy of helping others without the expectation of receiving something in return. Giving Gators does just that.  Please consider volunteering for this great program, we are always looking for more volunteers.  Please contact Destiny Wellenreiter for more information.


Antioch Gators donated enough food this year to make 288 bags.  This is 84 more bags than we were able to make last year and we are already looking forward to next year's Food Drive.  Way to Go Gators!


Gators Giving Grits (or Oatmeal)

Antioch Families you can continue to help Food for Families feed UCPS students (including Antioch students) food bags on the weekend. Your child can bring boxed (10 pack only) grits or oatmeal to the Food for Families container at the front of the school throughout the year. This will directly feed Union County students on the weekend. If you would like to help pack food bags on Tuesday nights in FFF’s warehouse please contact Renee Rogers at  


Also, go to for more information. Thank you for helping us feed kids!!!!


Food For Families

A non-profit organization that supplies food bags for students in Union County on the weekends. There is no cost to you, and each child that goes to a Union County School can receive a bag. The food is usually given out on Fridays at our school and goes in the child’s book bag. If you would like for your child to RECEIVE a food bag each week please click here.  


This information is confidential. You can talk with your child’s guidance counselor if you have any questions or if you need a food bag anytime during the year. Food for Families’ goal is to have NO HUNGRY CHILDREN IN UNION COUNTY!
