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.
