Winnetka Grade Schoolers Help Feed Homeless

Students at Crow Island School recently made and bagged ham and cheese sandwiches that will go to feeding homeless people through the Franciscan House of Mary & Joseph shelter.

Classes at the Crow Island School in Winnetka recently formed ham and cheese sandwich assembly lines to make sandwiches that would be donated to the homeless, according to the Chicago Tribune

"This service project teaches our students the importance of working together and of taking care of others," Crow Island principal, Julie Pfeffer, told the Chicago Tribune. "We also had a canned food collection and talked about the need for a food pantry, helping the students understand that even where we live, there are still people who don't have everything they need."
