The spirit of Christmas and giving inspired the 6th Annual Canned Food Drive together with Gleaners Community Food Bank where many Communication & Media Arts High School students donated thousands of canned goods to the homeless.
The donations included: canned fruits, ravioli, vegetables and even Vienna sausages. With it being the season of giving CMA students banded together to try and create a great holiday experience for the less fortunate.
“It’s nice to know that my small act of kindness can make such a big difference, said Briana Underwood, a CMA senior.
After falling short of the 2015 donation goal of 5,000 canned goods, CMA Vice Principal Cox set a new goal of 4,000.
“Homelessness is real and not something people want,"” said senior Traymani Thomas. "Nothing really hurts as much as seeing someone in open air with no place to go or no food to eat."
