The 7th grade visited Coastside Hope’s warehouse on Tuesday, June 6th. The purpose of the visit was to unload and sort over 35 barrels of food. The students worked tirelessly pulling barrels off pallets, emptying those barrels onto tables, and checking dates on all of the products they were sorting. Overall it was a very productive day. It was a collective effort with each student doing their best and using their strengths to help each other. With all of their hard work, Coastside Hope will now be able to hand out the food to families in need on the Coast.
Here is just some of what the students took away from this field trip…
“Fun, nice to help. It was hard work”
“ It was inspiring to see how much would or could get done as a group. It helped us work together and collectively collaborate”
“It felt good that every can I packed helped a family”
“It made me feel good because I was helping people who may have less than me”
