Hamilton High School students have gotten behind a community effort designed to reduce world hunger. Working with community and church leaders, the Hamilton Student Council has helped coordinate student contributions to the Kids Against Hunger campaign. The goal of Kids Against Hunger is to enlist 1,000 people in a one-day event to package more than 250,000 fortified meals to be distributed among starving children and families worldwide. The campaign also seeks to raise $30,000 to cover the cost of the ingredients for the food packages.
More than $2,000 has been raised by individual Hamilton students and the Pep Club, Student Council and National Honor Society. More than 70 high school students will volunteer two- and four-hour shifts between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Nov. 10 at the high school, where community organizers will hold the packaging event.
Contributions and volunteers are still needed. Please contact Sandi Blackwell at (262) 246-8486 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hamilton High School is located at W220 N6151 Town Line Road, Sussex.
