Hearts to Serve
The school year has been moving very fast! In November, Student Council partnered with Oak Ridge Baptist Church in filling shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. And as FEAST and Oak Ridge Baptist Church continue to join forces to fill the needs in the community. Student Council assisted in the collection of food for the Thanksgiving Baskets, given to community and FEAST families. Following that event A new BLANKET AND COATS drive began in mid -November to help the church Homeless Ministry. Student Council has boxes in the gym, please remember to bring your items and place them in the appropriate box. Student Council members continue working hard in the ongoing food collection for the church pantry. Thank you to all who have donated! Student Council members routinely donate their time to sort and prepare food bags for the church. Some members also attended the Feed the Homeless under the Bridge event the church has every first Sunday of the month. The experience has been a true blessing for those who have attended.
So many things to do and so little time… Our Student Council upcoming graduating seniors were recognized during the Senior Recognition Patriots Football Game. Thank you Patriots! In addition, Student Council members joyfully thanked FEAST students and parents by giving them Thanksgiving Cookies and Cards and gave a monetary donation to the church in order to support the church’s labor of love towards the needy in the community. All members were very busy with the annual popcorn and the Pizza fundraiser which both were very successful and delicious. Because every member worked very hard on all the Student Council activities, members were rewarded a yummy Thank You pizza lunch! We excitedly await other service projects such as Elf Louise Christmas present wrapping, activities like the Christmas social, continuing the work alongside the church and so much more to come in the month of December!
