Arkansas Rice Depot, Inc.
April 25, 2011
The Searcy County Alternative School is located in a low economically poverty ridden part of the state. We depend on the Arkansas Rice Depot to help our students recieve food that they would not otherwise recieve. Arkansas Rice Depot has come through countless times for my school and students. When we were without water in our school for 5 days, Arkansas Rice Depot showed up with bottled water without me even calling them. The only response I got was we heard about it on the news and new you needed help. When we lost everything in my school from a fire, Arkansas Rice Depot showed up with desks, paper, pencils, supplies for students and teachers alike. I don't know what we would do without Arkansas Rice Depot supporting us and helping us throughout the year. My students lives are better, they are attending school on a regular basis, and they are more alert and in a better frame of mind because Arkansas Rice Depot is there to help them.
