The students did an impressive job on our service project of making lunches for families in-need at the Embry Rucker Community Shelter in Reston. Due to your generous donations, they created 192 lunches, each with two ham or turkey & cheese sandwiches, bars, fruit, napkins, a spoon and water. That is over 750 slices of bread, more than 500 pieces of cheese and 50 pounds of deli meat! This was quite the math project – and a test of our organization skills!! We were also able to deliver 30 snack bags with additional items we had remaining.
The experience made quite an impact on our kids, recognizing that many people in our area do not have enough to eat every day. We will continue to participate in similar projects throughout the year to reinforce this message.
