Southmountain Estates Children are “Giving Back”

Posted by: swright 3 years ago

A group of 12 NYPUM students on Saturday, September 30th participated in a service project with Grace Church in Marion, North Carolina.  Southmountain joined 150 other volunteers at Pleasant Gardens Elementary School and packed 106,000 meals (that's correct ~ 106,000 meals were prepared) for Servants with a Heart, an organization committed to serving underprivileged communities overseas. We joined their incredibly efficient assembly line process and measured out ingredients, weighed, sealed and boxed fortified rice meals to ship to Nicaragua. Our kids served with joy and lots of laughs. They are always eager to give back!
