WNEP sponsors “Feed a Friend” to help feed needy families for Thanksgiving. Carbondale Area Student Council members adopted this venture and volunteered to organize and chair the event. Officers and representatives put up posters around the school announcing the fundraiser. They also put up six barrels around the high school for students to bring in donations of food products for Feed a Friend.
The student council team spoke to students in their homerooms and encouraged everyone to contribute to the project. Student council is receiving an overwhelming response from the Carbondale Area school community.
Olivia Manarchuck, a senior, is grateful of the outcome.
“Especially at this time of year when we have so much to be thankful for, it’s nice to be able to give to others who are not as fortunate,” said Olivia. “This is what the holiday season is all about. With kindness as our goal, serving others and paying it forward make us all feel a little more in the holiday spirit.”
Joanna Grizzanti and Teressa Dombrosky are the student council advisors.
