Sheely Farms 8th Graders “Pay It Forward”


Middle School students from Sheely Farms in Tolleson used their organization and communication skills to address a specific social issue affecting their community – hunger. After watching the film “Pay It Forward” and brainstorming some ideas about how to feed homeless people in their neighborhood, the group identified and contacted Hope Coach of the Phoenix Rescue Mission. With the grant money they received from Kids Who Care, the students purchased supplies and prepared over 100 sack lunches for Hope Coach. In addition, the students held a canned food drive. They made announcements throughout the school on posters and in school assemblies. Hundreds of cans were collected and donated.
