Food do­na­tion

The Globe - - RELIGIOUSSERVICES -

Since Thanks­giv­ing stu­dents and staff at Abing­ton High School have col­lected and or­ga­nized thou­sands of cans of food to help fam­i­lies through­out the town­ship over the hol­i­days. Abing­ton Key Club­bers sorted and packed all of the cans to do­nate to fam­i­lies in the area and to New Life Pres­by­te­rian Church’s food bank. Key Club also raised funds through pret­zel sales in or­der to buy WuUNHyV, SLHV, VWuI­fiQJ DQG fresh veg­eta­bles so that 12 fam­i­lies in need could have a nice Christ­mas din­ner. Last week Key COuE RI­fiFHUV DQG DGYLVRUV spent the day trav­el­ing around Abing­ton hand de­liv­er­ing food to each fam­ily. This year the high school col­lected and dis­trib­uted more cans than ever be­fore and made a big im­pact in the com­mu­nity.
