Local High School Students Receive $10,000 Grant to Benefit FAKH

Students in the Service Club at Elizabethtown High School recently won both a $10,000 grant to benefit FAKH as well as a $5,000 technology grant for their school.

Earlier this year, the club’s team, “We Scare Hunger”, submitted an application for the Lead2Feed: Student Leadership Program. Lead2Feed is an innovative program aimed at nurturing a new generation of leaders by empowering students to meet a community need through project management, decision making, and teamwork.

One of the team’s projects was their “Scare Hunger” food drive.  The event, held during Halloween, raised over 3,000 pounds of food that was used to help support the various hunger relief programs we provide.  More than 100 students worked together to collect all the food and deliver it to the Volunteer Center where the group also spent time volunteering.

We are extremely proud of the initiative shown by these students and the support they continue to provide to our organization!
