FTHS Students & Staff Donate Cookies and Paper Goods to Local Open-Door Lunch Program

During the month of December, students at Freehold Township High School were busy helping those in need.

Students in the FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) Chapter and the Grade 11 Student Government Association organized a school-wide paper product drive. Students and staff donated rolls of toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, and tissues.  These items were donated to the local non-profit, Feed All God’s Children, run by co-founder Jim Benedict. 

Feed All God’s Children is a non-profit soup kitchen and designated public charity organization. According to its website, the purpose of this program is to provide relief to the poor, distressed and underprivileged. The organization furthers its purpose by serving the community needs of the homeless, hungry, low-income residents, and families in need of food and clothing. 

In addition to the paper product drive, students in the school’s Family and Consumer Sciences classes baked several batches of cookies to donate to the open-door lunch program that Feed All God’s Children runs. Four dozen platters of cookies were donated in the hopes of bringing holiday cheer to those in need this holiday season.
