Allied Churches of Alamance County (ACAC) is the largest feeding program in the county, located less than 5 miles from Elon University’s campus. Their goal is to improve the community by helping residents find housing and secure meals. Originally, ACAC began as a core group of churches pooling its resources to serve community better. But today, ACAC acts as its own nonprofit funded by more than 100 churches in the local community.
Many major decisions are made through the Town of Elon’s Board of Alderman, which is currently going through the election process to find new representatives for the board.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration policy was established by former president Barack Obama in June 2012. President Donald Trump rescinded the policy Sept. 5. Two days later, Trump tweeted, “For all of those (DACA) that are concerned about your status during the 6 month period, you have nothing to worry about - No action!” Now, the future is unclear for the thousands of people enrolled in this program.
