Local students help those in need

From staff reports

The Winston County Modern Youth volunteers under the direction of Jane Harper recently made a difference prior to Christmas by donating to the Holy Ghost Temple Food Kitchen.

Rev. Lorene Guyse who has been providing food to locals for over 10 years has over 400 on the food bank list.

“We are thankful to be able to share with someone something to eat,” said Jean Harper, youth volunteer coordinator.

Five of the students in the group helped stock food on the shelves that they had provided.

Harper explained that the group had been learning about sharing.

Bessie Love had recently spoken to the group on the importance of sharing and helping others in the community.

“We do appreciate the help,” said Guyse. She added that the community does have many in need.

Volunteerism, education, patriotism and fun are the foundation of Modern Woodmen youth service clubs.

Through the programs, participating children undertake countless educational, service and beautification projects for the betterment of their local communities like the food donation.
