When children work together, they can accomplish amazing things. 

At the St Patrick Catholic School in White Lake this week they started collecting non-perishable food this week.  Their goal was to help those who the Open Door Outreach Center in Waterford helps to avoid hunger. 

The school has about 465 students in grades K-8.  They set a goal.  They wanted to collect 10,000 items.  They didn’t just accomplish that goal. Together they collected 18,742 canned goods, non-perishable food items, diapers and wipes.  The community then brought in an additional 2,000 items. 

The company Professional Movers volunteered to deliver the items.  It took two trips with a large moving truck to get the job done.
