Community Service Project: Food Drive for Fall Break

October 3rd, 2014

CCSC students will be heading home for a two-week fall break from Oct. 6-17, and Renaissance Academy students took the break as an opportunity to serve their community with a service project.

RA students ran a food drive these past few weeks for students within the Clarksville School Community who may be in need of nutritional assistance during the extended break away from school.

Students collected more than 500lbs of food with the help of many community partners including One Community Church, First Southern Baptist and other anonymous donors.

RA students took time shopping, organizing and distributing the food packages with assistance from community member, Debbie Hoover.

“This is what happens when you hand teenagers an envelope with a shopping list and some cash; they rise to the occasion to make smart decisions, cooperate with each other, and learn real-life( and sometimes hard) lessons,” Hoover said. “I couldn’t be more proud of how well these students did on this project!”
