Over 1000 items of food and supplies were collected by MCMS middle school students and donated to the Readfield and Mt. Vernon food banks. The 7th graders and their advisors delivered and sorted the items. Following the delivery and sorting of the food, each group went out into one of our four communities to help folks in need. The nine advisee groups, totaling eighty two students, stacked fire wood, raked leaves, mulched gardens, and helped elderly community members with various jobs they needed done to prepare for winter.
Community members were more than grateful for the help, as one couple commented, “we were overjoyed by the work done by your students”.
This is a great example of how we show we are a “caring community dedicated to excellence”.
