Porter Ridge Elementary students learn lesson of service
Second graders at Porter Ridge Elementary School recently learned a lesson in service when they provided food for an area homeless shelter.
â€œWanting to do something to help others, these students took on a project of providing food for a shelter in Charlotte,â€ said Penny Tomberlin, a teacher at Porter Ridge Elementary.
In one day, the students made more than 400 sandwiches. Tomberlin said students not only got a lesson on service to others, they also had fun doing it.
