Mrs. Kerry Kunaiâ€™s second grade class gave back to the community this year by collecting non-perishable food items for donation.
Each semester they gather up the items they have collected and drop them off to places such as Loaves and Fishes and Second Harvest Food Bank.
â€œIn the beginning of the year when we studied â€˜being a good citizenâ€™, my students wanted to help others. As a class they decided that collecting non-perishable food items would be their way of helping out,â€ says Mrs. Kunai.
â€œEveryone has extras in their pantry that they can donate,â€ says Charlie Melchor.
â€œIt makes me feel like a good helper,â€ says Yessi Morales.
This year Mrs. Kunaiâ€™s class was able to collect over 200 cans and many other non-perishable items for donation.
