They may be young, but they understand the importance of providing a community service. As the first service project of the school year, Willow Springs Learning Center 4-year-old kindergartners will donate more than 1,200 food items to the Sussex Food Pantry.
The food collection service project included a challenge from Willow Spring Principal Margee Tackes, Ed.D., who said she would surprise the students by working one day on the roof if they collected more than 1,200 items. Willow Springs students and families met and surpassed the challenge.
The food will be delivered to the Sussex Food Pantry the week of Oct. 4, and Tackes will work from on the roof on Sept. 30.
