Shaggy’s restaurants present $50K check to Pass Christian Early Learning Collaborative

A Coast favorite restaurant made a big donation to the Pass Christian School District.

Shaggy’s Restaurant presented a $50,000 check to the district for the Pass Christian Early Learning Collaborative.

The early learning collaborative is a one-to-one tax credit program that aims to provide high-quality early education to four-year-old children.

The pre-k children at the presentation were ecstatic to see a check so big! Pass Christian School Superintendent Dr. Carla Evers said, “This is our fourth year having our own pre-k program, but this year we wrote for the collaborative grant because we really wanted to expand our program. We usually have about 120 students per class, so we know there are more 4-year-olds out there in our community who will benefit from early start in their education.”

The deadline for tax-credit-eligible donations is December 31st, 2022 for the 2022 tax year.

If you would like to donate you can contact Dr. Mandy Lacy or Mrs. Patty Cooper at 228-255-6200.
