Elementary school in Liberty Twp. collects over 1,000 food items for Second Harvest

Updated:

LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A first grade project to raise awareness about the wants and needs within a community has turned into a school wide campaign to feed the Valley's needy.

Youngstown State University education majors, observing at E.J. Blott Elementary School in Liberty, launched a food drive earlier this week.

On Friday afternoon they presented the Second Harvest Food Bank with more than 1,100 non-perishable food items.

"I never thought it would be this much. I was so surprised today when we kept carrying the canned goods in and the tallies were like 100, over 100," said Callie Garland, YSU education major.

The donations will be distributed to local food pantries, soup kitchens and churches.
