MSF Upcoming Events

Here’s a summary of MSF’s next events!

MSF Anti-Bullying Event

MSF will talk to 5th graders at Lowery Elementary School and 6th – 8th graders at Lowery Middle School in Donaldsonville, Louisiana on October 26, 2017 about cyber bullying. Both school counselors agreed that cyber bullying is a major issue the students are facing this year. Last year, MSF spoke to 3rd – 5th graders about bullying at Lowery Elementary. This year’s focus will be on the 5th graders for the school. MSF hopes to gain support from parents, other relatives and friends of the students at both schools. Please help us to reinforce positive behavior and to stomp out bullying!

What I am Thankful for Dinners

On November 4th and 11th, MSF will host its annual dinner events for Partners Against Domestic Violence (PADV). MSF will cook and serve dinner and have arts and crafts with the children. This year there will be a change in the line up. MSF is excited to have a guest speaker!

Camille Eden Singleton Blanket Drive

Camille Eden Singleton Blanket Drive

On July 10th, MSF was privileged to present Northside Hospital with needed blankets for the NICU department. The blankets were made by our own MSF member, Linda Singleton. MSF’s donation is in memory of Camille Eden Singleton.

“We are truly blessed that the Myles Singleton Foundation came together to honor our little angel, Camille Eden Singleton, by donating these blankets to the families of newborn babies at Northside Hospital Atlanta. Our Camille was here for 12 days and we were blessed by the wonderful Drs. and Nurses who cared for her while she was here. We too received blanket donations during our time of need and wanted to return the favor and give back. Thank you to all of the (MSF) members that helped to put this together.” Kevin Singleton
