On Monday, October¬†¬†24th, South High’s Young Life Campaigner’s group donated a few hours of their time to walk around the South Main Street area and ask the home owners if they could spare a few non-perishable food items to the Kansas Food Bank.

The group met at a leaders house at 4:00pm, and soon seperated into many different groups, mainly consisting of 3-4 students each, and at least one adult, and went door to door at each house on 4 different blocks. Many of the groups had another leader follow them with a car, so that when food was collected, the students could easily put the food into the car.

The group collected over 80 cans.
