Lon Morris College Students Meet Challenge by Feinstein Corporation to Help Feed the Hungry
JACKSONVILLE, TX. – Lon Morris College students took a challenge made by the Feinstein Corp. to help feed the hungry nationwide through their challenge to the H.O.P.E. organization in Jacksonville, Texas. Students of the Service Learning classes at Lon Morris College and the Lon Morris College band worked hard to raise money and collect can goods during the month of March. The Feinstein group will match both the money and canned good donations.
The Lon Morris College Band went door to door this past week asking neighbors and friends to give canned goods or money. Hannah Foster was in charge of the challenge, but had great help from Linda Gray, the LMC librarian, Mike Kellogg, the LMC band director, the LMC band, Ms. Addington, teacher of Service Learning, and Service Learning students. With the help of all these great faculty and students, Lon Morris College did their part in helping feed the hungry.
