Greencastle-Antrim High School is hosting a variety of events as part of its third annual Martin Luther King Jr. service project.
All spectators who attend the Jan. 20 home basketball games against James Buchanan High School will receive $1 off game admission if they bring a canned good or other nonperishable food item. These canned goods will be donated to two local food organizations: the Greencastle and St. Thomas (Pa.) food pantries, according to a news release from the high school.
The local food pantries were well-utilized during the holiday season and are seeking food donations such as canned fruit, vegetables, peanut butter and jelly, Kraft macaroni and cheese, Hamburger Helper or any other non-perishable food item, to replenish their stock.
Community members interested in donating items to the food pantries may also drop them off in the lobby of the high school’s main office Jan. 16-19. Civics students also are collecting food items through a competition between the classes. Through classroom lessons, students will learn the connection between their service actions and the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., the release said
This service project is being sponsored by committee members of STARS, which stands for Students and Teachers Achieving Results through Service, and the school’s National Honor Society.
STARS has planned several commemoration activities that will be held in the cafeteria on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which is Jan. 16.
