District Student's & Staff Come Together for the 14th Annual Helping Hands for Hunger

           Today, students and staff from across the Manchester Township School District gathered at Manchester Township High School to package food donation baskets ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday in the High School's annual Helping Hands for Hunger initiative.  Helping Hands for Hunger began 14 years ago and provides school district families in need with confidential meal support during the Thanksgiving season. In order to try and meet demand, the High School collected donations from the school and surrounding community to help purchase the food items needed to complete the Helping Hands for Hunger donation meal baskets.


            “Each year schools and clubs across the district participate in supporting Helping Hands for Hunger with non-perishable donations that provide school families in need confidential support through meal baskets for the Thanksgiving season” says Sarah Thiffault, Vice Principal of Manchester Township High School. “In order for us to purchase perishable items such as turkeys and the baking ingredients used by the High School’s culinary arts students to provide fresh, baked goods to each family, we are thankful for the community donations that also came through to help that part of our initiative.”


      Students and staff packaged over 150 food baskets today full of donations that they hope provide support not only for the Thanksgiving holiday, but for the days to come. Thank you to the Manchester school family, generous community members, and the businesses who donated to the collection efforts.
