Poverty in Hamblen Country Addressed through Thanksgiving Drive

BY LESLIE ALARCON

Every holiday should consist of lots of celebrations and happiness, but for some families the holidays are the darkest of days. Those families pray for what we will not even consider because of our selfish ways. Being able to afford basic food items for the holidays seems like no luxury for the average person, but having an abundance of food is only a dream for those who are not as fortunate. As a community and school, we are making the holidays a whole lot brighter for those families. Our school challenges every 3rd block class to fill a box with basic thanksgiving food items that later will be gifted personally by a principal to the door of those families.
