Students in the 18+ program are learning the value of serving others. They recently spent time working with the North Texas Food Bank and Brookhaven College. North Texas Food Bank takes a truck full of produce to Brookhaven College once a month. Our students unloaded the truck and then bagged vegetables for families in need. They were able to help 121 families in less than 90 minutes. The staff at Brookhaven was grateful and so complimentary of our Vanguard students. ” They were truly lifesavers today.”
We have adopted this as our service project for the year and will help once a month. We will also hold a food drive in the near future to support the on-going food pantry at Brookhaven.
