01-September-2017 (HCS) - In July 2017, District Administration magazine honored the partnership between Hoover City Schools and the Hoover Helps organization, naming both entities honorees in its annual Districts of Distinction awards program.

Hoover City Schools now joins more than 200 other school districts nationally which have been recognized through Districts of Distinction for leading the way with ideas that work.  Districts of Distinction looks to honor “established initiatives that are yielding quantifiable benefits, and that could be replicated by other districts.”

Hoover City Schools and Hoover Helps partnered in early 2015, serving some 80 children at the time.  Now, hundreds of Hoover City Schools students receive weekly food assistance from this program.  In its latest count, it was estimated that nearly $100,000.00 in food had been distributed from January 2017-July 2017, according to officials from Hoover Helps.
