Just three Coral Glades High School students recently collected close to half a ton of clothing and food items in an effort to help the needy in Broward County.
Eagle Trace residents Karina (15) and Krystina Subieta (13) and Daniel Harris (15) ( see in the photo on the right) called on more than 120 neighborhood families asking for their support in an initiative to help “The Cooperative Feeding Program” www.FeedingBroward.org which serves more than 400 hot meals a day to homeless people and families at risk. The agency also provides clothing and food packages from their “Emergency Pantry” to 100 poor families each day from throughout Broward County.
“We just wanted to help other people”, the trio commented. “We wanted to do some community hours where we could really make a difference”. The teens were very pleased with the community’s response and are already planning on another clothing drive in the fall. “People want to help others in need, so we will have another clothing and food drive in October. But if people would like to help us help the needy, they can always call us at (954) 227-1964”.
All too often we adults complain about the youth being selfish, but this is a wonderful example of three young people who are making the world a little better for everyone.
