A Little Goes a Long Way in Annual Food Drive

During the recent holiday season, student leaders at Cushing set out to raise awareness of the challenges and difficulties some local families face each day simply to put food on their table. Determined to make a difference, these students launched the 4th annual Cushing Academy Food Bank Campaign. This project was designed to raise funds for the Worcester County Food Bank, an organization based in Central Massachusetts that serves more than 60 communities in the local area. The students leading this effort worked tirelessly to organize and promote this campaign, all while inspiring the Cushing community to reach out to those in need.
We are pleased to report that as a result of this student-led community effort, a check in the amount of $1318.65 was delivered to the Worcester County Food Bank. Although the vital work to relieve hunger is ongoing, these funds will help provide much-needed sustenance to hundreds of local families.
In addition, the director of the Worcester County Food Bank has invited Cushing students to visit the facilities to learn how their donations serve the many families in the local area. Students are also invited to spend some time there volunteering to sort and pack food boxes. We'll be planning a trip for Winter Term, providing an excellent opportunity for our students to get involved in a significant service project in our local community.
