‘Caring and sharing’

The Grant County High School Caring for Communities Club challenged all third period classes to see who could bring in the most food for the Northern Kentucky Community Action Center in Williamstown. The food drive ran from Nov. 9 to Nov. 22. The JROTC class won the contest with 176 donated items and celebrated with a pizza party on Nov. 24. In total, students contributed 834 items.
Some students helped out at the Cincinnati Free Store mobile foodbank in the parking lot of the Olde Star Mall on Nov. 8. Trevor Dean is called the “bread man” by his peers, because he works every month, sitting in his wheelchair giving out bread.
The food give-away provides 50 pounds of food to Grant County residents and is co-sponsored by the Northern Kentucky Community Action Commission. Student participation is led by GCHS job coach and employment coordinator Debbie Hermens.
