A Successful Food Packaging Event!

Hi, everyone!

I recently coordinated a food packaging event at my school for the disadvantaged.  To cover the costs ($3,000), I applied for and received grants from Disney and Sodexo.  With the help of my principal, we also ran a fundraiser at school to make up the rest!

The event was yesterday afternoon — it was a HUGE success!   Our team of volunteers packaged nearly 10,000 meals! 

Channel 6, Channel 10, and WFMZ69 were all there with news cameras!  I was also interviewed!

Here’s the link to the story by WFMZ69:

My school district honored me for the food packaging event.  Click here to read about that.  Below is a picture of me and my family with my principal and superintendent at the Board Meeting where I was recognized!  Thank you, Pennridge!

Thank you to the Bucks County Herald, the Upper Bucks Free Press, The News-Herald, and The Reporter for also covering the food packaging event.  Each newspaper has a terrific story about the event online.  The links are below!

A very BIG thank you to my principal, my teachers, and to all the students at my school for helping make this happen!
