HAMILTON, NJ -- Approximately 1,000 bagged meals will be provided to the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) thanks to hard work of Steinert High School students.
In what was described as a first-hand lesson in giving back to those less fortunate in their community, the Spartan students, staff members, administration and board of education members helped assemble bags of water and snacks for a sandwich making activity, providing meals to hungry families in the Mercer County area.
One thousand bottles of water were also contributed to the activity made possible, in part, by donations from the Kiwanis Club.
Steinert High School Principal Nate Webber said the program was developed to show the importance of serving others.
"Our students and staff were excited for the event and this follows our Steinert Pride Core Values. This project enabled our entire school community to be involved to serve those less fortunate," said Webber. "I am so proud of our students, staff, and the entire Steinert School Community."
