2016 Miss Georgia Jr. Pre-Teen Claudia Fether and Meals by Grace

National American Miss Team Georgia was busy serving their community this past weekend by preparing, packing and delivering food to children and families in need with an organization called Meals by Grace.

Spearheaded by Miss Georgia Jr. Pre-Teen, Claudia Fether, this team of queens came together with NAM All-American qualifiers, siblings and parents to feed 45 families. Service activities included unloading food from trucks, sorting cans and dry goods, selecting and packing each family’s food needs, creating personalized encouragement cards and delivering the food to each family.

Books donated by Georgia NAM contestants were carefully sorted by age and hand picked to be placed in each family’s box making sure each child was given an age-appropriate book. Delivery was the highlight of the day as children and their guardians anxiously awaited the arrival of their food which will feed their family for an entire week.

Some children even received birthday cakes to celebrate their birthdays in the upcoming week. It was a day of blessings for everyone involved and these amazing young ladies are already looking forward to the next opportunity to serve together representing National American Miss!

They served about 120 people and Jessica performed duties that involved food service and clean up with her friendly, sweet smile and ease of discussing different topics with our performers. At the appointed time, Jessica stood at the front door with the head usher, welcoming attendees to this very special and somber concert. Her presence and smiles provided such special qualities to those entering the church: hope for the future, welcoming as only a child can do with innocence and love. Jessica added such a specialness to this concert. Jessica performed these tasks with ease and comfort and great poise. She took direction well, understanding immediately what was being asked of her. Choir members, musicians and those attending the concert, were so taken with her. Jessica provided some salve to the wounds of the people of Charleston, something she didn’t even realize she did. The Choir was very grateful to this beautiful young lady and wish her great success in her future endeavors.
