Coca-Cola Hosts Pizza Party for Jackson-Feild’s Children

Most everyone would likely agree that there’s not a teen who doesn’t enjoy pizza and a Coke.

The boys and girls at Jackson-Feild Behavioral Health Services were recently thrilled to enjoy an all-you-can eat pizza party compliments of the Halifax NC-based Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated.

A team of volunteers led by sales rep John Lassiter brought pizza, cookies, and Coca-Cola products for each resident in addition to a generous monetary gift for special meals and recreational activities for the residents during the Christmas holidays.

The Coca-Cola folks brought to campus much more than pizzas and sodas.  They brought a special brand of kindness that always puts a smile on a child’s face.  It’s difficult to be away from home during the Christmas holidays, but after an afternoon of simply sharing a Coke, these good friends from Halifax NC left the boys and girls knowing that someone cares about them and that they are valued and appreciated.

The folks from Coca-Cola Bottling Company Consolidated – Halifax (NC) brought the spirit and meaning of Christmas to the children of Jackson-Feild, and everyone on campus is incredibly grateful for their support.
