Midland Adventist Academy’s Class of 2012 from Shawnee, Kansas visited the Second Harvest warehouse in Watsonville on May 19th. They packed 2,880 USDA commodity bags, which equals 28,800 pounds. Their hard work will help us provide 22,500 meals to people in need.
“Each year our school plans a senior class trip,” explained Jason Donovan of Midland Adventist Academy. “The students work hard from grade nine through grade twelve to raise funds to have one last hoorah as a class and to celebrate the ending of their high school years. During their trip, they were challenged to give to the community of their destination. We chose to help the food bank and had a great time.
“We are a Seventh-day Adventist Christian school and part of our program is service: giving of personal time and energy to the community. This is a habit we desire our students to possess as a life-long habit. Thanks for providing us with the opportunity to help in your community.”
Congratulations to all of the graduates and thank you for making Second Harvest and our community a part of your celebration!
