Cannelton students helping the needy

-A A +A

Cannelton Elementary’s first through fifth grade students have been collecting cans for a food drive.

In the first month, 156 cans were collected and donated to Jasper’s Food pantry in Cannelton. Each class is learning about cost, weight and counting while helping the needy. The classes are assigned different items to bring in each month for their service-learning project.  The third grade class was the first to make the school’s donation. Pictured with donated items, in the front from the left, are Maggie Dawson, Kyra Hemmings, Jon Huff, Swan Paris and Jhett Garrett. In the back are Mrs. Weatherholt, Samarah Schneider, Naomi Flint, Logan Bishop, Evelyn Adams of the food pantry, Dameion Bell, Jackson Sandage and Ann Skibo of the food pantry.
