Local magnet school first graders, learn about giving back to their community.

     Wednesday March 29 and Thursday March 30, first grade students for Jo Mackey Magnet School visited the Serving Our Kids facilities and bagged 800 weekend food bags for “our kids”!  Jo Mackey is teaching these young people the importance of giving back to their community and the life lesson that there are needs in this world.  Serving Our Kids philosophy of Kids Helping Kids fits with there goal and we were very happy to accommodate an outstanding class of students.  Over 100 students from 5 classes participated and really got into their work and the project given to them by their teachers.  They enjoyed it so much, that in May they held a movie night, “Trolls” and on June 1 presented the $1,000.00 proceeds to Serving Our Kids.   Thank you Jo Mackey Magnet School for caring and teaching these students a very important lesson and for their kindness to “our kids”.
