The giving of thanks season is just around the corner. At Sartell High School, the student council has come up with a wonderful donation idea for Thanksgiving. The Thanksgiving bag is for giving to families in need who can’t afford food on this special holiday.

The bag is about packing a Thanksgiving meal to a family in need. The students bring in items that the student council has asked for in the bags. They have a list and the 1st block classrooms fill the bags with these items. The bags then are filled and, over Thanksgiving week, some of the advisors at the Sartell High School are going to go to the houses that are in need of the bags and give it to them for this wonderful holiday.

The kids at Sartell High School are packing the bags with canned food items, boxes of certain foods, bags of certain things, and a gift card for that family. Here are some wonderful ways you can help out around the holiday. Just click here.

 

Karrie Fredrickson, head student council advisor, shares some thoughts about this particular project.

What makes the student council want to participate in this donating?

“We see hunger as an issue every year and it’s something we try to help with a lot and plan them into any activity we have.                                        Like taking a dollar off a school dance if you bring a non-perishable food item.”

Where and who do the Thanksgiving bags go to?

“It’s determined by the counseling office and administration at our other buildings in determining who gets the bags.”

How many bags do you guys plan on raising?

“We plan on raising 85 and right now we have 15.”

How can people help out even after the bags are due?

“Anytime anyone brings a food item in either for the drives or for when we offer money off for dances. If you bring that in, it is always a way to help out.”
