Council Rock School District students, along with their teachers, have been named the “Volunteers of the Year” by the Caring for Friends Foundation.
The students from the Council Rock School District have been involved in the program since 2021 and have delivered an average of 400 to 600 meals a month during this school year.
The Caring for Friends Foundation provides meals to those in need throughout the area.
Students from Council Rock North High School and Council Rock’s Sloan School have worked together to help the nonprofit. The students assemble meal kits that are packaged and sent to neighborhood organizations that assist the homebound and other who are in need.
“Hunger does not discriminate,” said Superintendent Dr. Andrew Sanko. “And these students are demonstrating compassion while learning important social skills.”
The efforts of the students and their teachers – Cemantha Giulian and Adam Collachi – were recognized on a 6abc “Hometown Heroes” segment that aired Wednesday.
Giulian shared her excitement and said: “The relationships, social skills, and communication among the students are amazing to watch. This program is really making a big impact on the community.”
