Students in preschool through ninth grade at Cornerstone Academy in Snohomish helped “Feed the Need” on Nov. 2. Kids measured dry soy, dehydrated veggies, rice and a protein-vitamin mix into baggies that were then sealed. In four hours, volunteers packaged 10,000 meals, most of which were slated to be shipped to Haiti. The charitable effort was a fundraiser for the school. It was a program of a company that provided the ingredients and was paid for its services, including a consulting fee, with a portion of the dollars raised.
Local corporate sponsors for the school’s event included Looking Glass Coffee, Chasen Smiles Family Dentistry, Hilleberg the Tentmaker, Epic Insurance, Fresh Start Floor Covering and Whitfield’s Auto Licensing.
