Possum Students Volunteer at Soup Kitchen

Eigth grade Possum  students are giving back to their community this holiday season at the Springfield Soup Kitchen.

Students were discussing empathy and opportunities to make an impact in their community, and reached out to the Springfield Soup Kitchen to volunteer. On Sunday, Dec. 4, students volunteered at the soup kitchen, serving approximately 200 homeless residents of Clark County.

While discussing issues surrounding poverty, students were driven to create emergency bags that included a water bottle, granola bars, fruit snacks, candy, cough drops and tissues - basic essentials that are often needed by the homeless population, according to the director and founder of the Springfield Soup Kitchen.Students volunteered again at the Soup Kitchen on Dec. 7.

"It has been an amazing experience for our students and they are requesting that we continue to serve monthly," said Tracy Engel, school social worker, who has worked with students to organize these opportunities.
