COVINGTON, Ga. — Nineteen people from some Newton County small businesses delivered food to more than 2,500 Newton County Schools System teachers in all 25 schools Friday, Sept. 11.

The initiative by Newton County Industrial Development Authority and the Covington-Newton County Chamber of Commerce was designed to assist both educators and local restaurants. 

Fifteen community partners from industries, small businesses and civic organizations as well as local residents contributed to the effort, organizers said.
