Junior Jazz Team Volunteer at Food & Clothing Pantry

On Wednesday, November 16, 2011, the Junior Jazz Team completed its very first Project 212 community service project. They were chaperoned by Janice Gordon, Deanna Leslie and Kim Compton. After a fun dinner at Nick Henry’s, they traveled just down the road to Marathon Church. The church has a Food and Clothes Pantry that is available to those in need, whether they are a church member or just from the community.
The Juniors had a variety of jobs, and they were very enthusiastic to get busy. The boys (Adam, Aaron & Romeo) sorted and put away all the shoes (men’s, women’s & children’s). The girls (Erika, Krista, Cierra, & Jackie) got busy with the canned & boxed grocery items. First, they checked for expiration dates, and then they organized and stocked the shelves with the items. They also helped put away clothing that had been donated.
While there, two families came in to get some much-needed items. By the end of the night, they all realized how very fortunate they are and each gained an appreciation for the surpluses of both food and clothing that exists in their own homes. They left excited and ready to continue with this type of service work in our community.
Go JUNIORS. We are very proud of you!
