Romulus Community Schools launched its annual Holiday Food Drive in early December and the collaboration efforts were in full effect. Students from the Middle and High School demonstrated the giving spirit by donating over 2-thousand non-perishable food items. Individual groups within the district including the Middle School’s Youth Leadership group and the High School’s Bowling Team have spread the valuable life lesson of giving to those in need throughout the entire student body. “This is a great district and a giving district” Mark Edwards, Coordinator of School Relations and Youth Leadership Advisor said “The best part about this food collection is that it helps people in our community”. The food that is collected goes directly to the Helping Hand Thrift Shop who then distributes it to local families in need. This has been a special year; many have stepped up to help make it possible for more families to get food assistance for their holiday meals. Helping Hand volunteer Rose Scharboneau said “Without the Schools, City and organizations like the Boy Scouts our work would not be possible”. If you’d like to donate or need assistance, contact the Helping Hand Thrift Shop at 734-941-5323.
