Langston families have graciously donated some 650 canned food items to donate to the Hot Springs Jackson House, during a January food drive. As part of the effort, Langston students also decorated Valentine’s Day lunch bags, which will be used by Jackson House staff members to sack food items on Valentine’s Day and spread a little “love” to those receiving lunches.  The Jackson House serves the Hot Springs community as a homeless shelter, food pantry, and crisis intervention center. The Langston Health & Wellness Committee chose a food drive as the January community service project to challenge students at the very beginning of the new year to value the service and care of others.

Non-perishable items were collected through the Langston office throughout January. Students helped to organize and count all non-perishable donations received. While the Jackson House does partner with the local Project Hope Food Bank, food drives like this one help them to subsidize their offerings, and to collect items that are often hard to get. Peanut butter, cereal, and jello are often the most requested from the community, because they can be served to families and individuals with special diet needs.

Thank you to all Langston staff members and families for being part of this community service effort! Learn more about the Hot Springs Jackson House, here. Learn more about our #HSSD Langston Magnet School, here.
