Seeds of Health’s Tenor and Veritas High School students give back to the community
MILWAUKEE (Dec. 22, 2017) – Seeds of Health is proud to share that students from Tenor and Veritas High Schools participated in several community service projects over the past couple of months to give back to the community.
In the month of October, Veritas High School students collected more than 700 pairs of socks and donated them to Robyn's Nest in West Allis. During the month of November, Veritas students held a food drive, of which items collected were donated to the Hunger Task Force. Now, in December, Veritas student council sponsored "Family Ties" where blankets were made to be donated to Robyn's Nest, along with coats and jackets.
Students from Tenor high school put on a bake sale and were able to raise a few hundred dollars. They used proceeds from the sale to buy gloves and hats for deserving students at Windlake Elementary School and Windlake Academy.
“We are so proud of our students’ generosity and thoughtfulness,” said Marcia Spector, Executive Director for Seeds of Health. “It is so important to give back to others in our surrounding communities.”
