December 06, 2012Of the many annual community projects she coordinates, SERVE director Alicia Carlisle admits the district’s three middle schools’ partnership with Kids Against Hunger is one of her favorites.
The partnership is in its fourth year. In the past, a group of students from Brownell, Parcells and Pierce middle schools met up and worked together to package the equivalent of 10,000 meals. To Carlisle, that wasn’t enough of an impact among the district’s students, so last year she adjusted the project to a rotation schedule, with Brownell, Parcells and Pierce each taking turns hosting the food-aid organization at their respective schools. Doing so opens opportunities for the shy, reserved students to participate and serve their community. Brownell hosted last year and Pierce a few weeks ago.
