Successful Food Drive Make Delivery to Food Pantry

With the help of the school’s porters, we were able to get the large number of boxes quickly outside and loaded into vehicles. Groups 16 and 17 were in charge of sorting, counting and delivering the food donations to POTS.

Group 16 went shopping to Aldi with the money that was donated and purchased over 150 cans. They then went to POTS and delivered the items.

These young men, named: Kelly, Arthur, Nick, Nick, and Alex learned sighted guide quickly and assisted us in carrying the remaining food.  It was a wonderful experience with our guides to make sure all of the food was delivered safely, and to provide for the poor.

 We met our goal of 2,704!!

It was a lot of hard work but it was worth it, especially seeing all the needy people waiting for outside of POTS for their food.
