Home school students in grades 6th through 12th with Inspire Charter School worked for a month collecting items to donate to the Community Mission of Hope and spend a day in service on Tuesday, Sept. 24.
The event was organized by Allison Lurkins, Community Coordinator and HST teacher with Inspire Charter Schools.
“This is a service project to give back to the community,” Lurkins said. “These students could go anywhere and they wanted to create a service giving back field-trip — so this exciting.”
The students brought in 151 pounds of donated food and 13 pounds of personal hygiene products, but they weren’t just there to drop off.
“They have been collecting these items for a month and different locations around town,” Lurkins said. “The students were there almost two hours checking dates on food, sorting food into categories, and boxing the food for families.”
The students also took a tour to learn more about what Community Mission of Hope does for the community.
Lurkins said the students come from communities from Menifee to Temecula and take several field trips and attend special events throughout the year with Inspire Charter Schools.
