Successful Thanksgiving Food Drive at SCA

Lee’s Simmit, MO– Summit Christian Academy (SCA) elementary students have been collecting food this week to help families in the community.  What has become an annual event at the school has really helped teach students about the joy of giving and the importance of helping others.  With almost 7500 donated items, SCA students filled 415 boxes that will be handed out for families to have just in time for the coming holiday.

Kindergarten through sixth grade students participated in an all-school collection to gather specific items.  As a result, thousands of paper products, canned goods, and boxed food items were donated.

“I’m so proud of the way our students give with such thankful hearts,” said Elementary Vice Principal Mrs. Charissa Sanders. “They realize that their giving will help families in the community enjoy a great Thanksgiving meal, and that really makes the difference,” said Mrs. Sanders.

 

Sixth graders formed an assembly line and filled each box with various items to make a meal and included a handwritten note of love and encouragement.

 

The food drive was held in partnership with the Courageous Life Church, Belton Assembly of God Church, and Turning Point Church. The boxes of food will be distributed along with turkeys to families for Thanksgiving.

 

Established in 1989, SCA is celebrating 25 years of providing excellent academics in a Christian environment to the Kansas City metro area. SCA is an independent, nondenominational Christian school serving over 725 preschool through high school students. Located on a 36-acre campus, SCA holds dual accreditation through North Central Association and Association of Christian Schools International.
