December 13, 2013 -- The Lorain County JVS collected over 9,000 pounds of food to restock the shelves of the Second Harvest Food Bank after the Christmas rush. Food was donated by students, staff members and community friends. The drive was spearheaded by students in the DECA and VYC-Interact Vocational Youth Clubs.
"Our goal was to collect 7 pounds of food for each JVS student on campus," stated Assistant Principal Jim Beatty. "We far exceeded that goal even before the food drive was over, which speaks to the generosity of our students and staff."
Located in Lorain, Second Harvest is a non-profit food bank that supplies service agencies with food for needy families in Lorain, Erie and Huron counties. The Lorain County JVS is one of the largest independent contributors to the food bank from Lorain County.
