We are the Body of Christ-
In conjunction with studying a Bible unit about the Body of Christ serving as salt and light to our community, TKA Fourth Graders “hit the road” to volunteer at Second Harvest Food Bank in Maryville. A group of fifty students, parents, and teachers spent the morning putting stickers on 18,480 cans of beans and preparing them for storage at the Second Harvest warehouse. These cans account for over nine tons of food which could help provide meals for almost 20,700 people.
“Our annual field trip to Second Harvest Food Bank is one of our favorite trips each year. The students love the opportunity to serve as they watch the pallets of cans grow taller and taller!” comments Lori Campbell, one of the fourth grade teachers. “We are able to accomplish so much in just a few hours.”
“I enjoyed working at Second Harvest Food Bank. It made me realize how fortunate I am to have plenty to eat. I would like to help out there again in the future,” said TKA student Caleb Tarwater.
