St. Joseph’s stu­dents serve the home­less

South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Sunday) - - Society - By Kris­lyn Placide Sun Sen­tinel So­ci­ety Scene

Eighth-grade stu­dents from St. Joseph’s Epis­co­pal School learned the value of giv­ing by pre­par­ing and serv­ing a hol­i­day meal for the home­less and food in­se­cure at Holy Redeemer Epis­co­pal Church in Lake Worth on Dec. 14.

Stu­dents each pro­vided an item for the din­ner, and they were en­cour­aged to pur­chase the food with their own money. Dur­ing the event, they also dis­trib­uted shoes col­lected by lo­cal churches.

“This is a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to help the stu­dents un­der­stand that the true spirit of Christ­mas is about giv­ing,” said the Rev. Lynne E. Jones, who is chap­lain and a teacher at St. Joseph’s. Jones ac­com­pa­nied the stu­dents to the event.
