The ninth-grade class at Trinity Classical Academy participated in a community-service project as a way to benefit the Santa Clarita Valley’s homeless with fresh meals.

Students began by signing up to bring food items, such as loaves of bread, peanut butter, jelly, chips, cases of water, cookies and fruit. Each student brought his or her assigned item Friday morning, and then the students began to assemble the food into 70 lunch bags.

They also wrote encouraging notes to place in each bag.

“It was fun working with my classmates to do something to help people who have so much less than we have,” freshman Colton Oshiro said.

The project was directed by teachers Andrew Richardson and Grant Horner, who opened the project with a prayer. Assisting them were parent volunteers Suzanne Ceglia and Shawnee Brooks, who spoke to them about the impact of helping people who have no home.

Following assembly, the lunches were delivered to Bridge to Home, the Santa Clarita Valley’s only homeless shelter located on Drayton Street.

“It was great to see the students’ cooperation in working together to set up and prepare the lunches,” Brooks said. “They had a wonderful determination and enthusiasm for the job. It was sweet to see the colorful notes they wrote that had hearts and wishes for the recipient to have a nice day.”
