CGCC Donates Holiday Food Items for Local Charter School

A big shout out to the students, faculty and staff who participated in last month's food drive benefiting Concordia Charter School in Mesa. Over 900 food items were donated to families as part of Educators Rising and HELP clubs' holiday outreach efforts.

Educators Rising at CGCC is a student club that provides passionate students with authentic opportunities to experience teaching, sustain their interest in the profession, and help them cultivate their skills they need to be successful teachers. Their members are currently working with students at Concordia Charter School as part of their teaching curriculum. Hands Enriching Lives Projects (HELP) is another student club on campus with the mission of serving needs in local communities. 

With the help of the CGCC community, Educators Rising and HELP students were able to create 76 meals for the families along with 13 partial bags for the larger families.

Check out this video created by CGCC Educators Rising president Breanna Wright highlighting the food drive efforts.
Thank you to everyone who made this food drive such a success!
