Awesome Job University 101 Students!

This class is required to complete a service project.  One of their projects was getting the Food Rescue program started.  To date we have rescued 7620 food items that would have gone to the trash.  They also wanted to give coats to Farrington Grove Elementary school for upcoming winter needs.  Here some of our students met with Bill Tennis, director of Goodwill.  With the help of Goodwill and the generosity of the THS family our students collected 91 coats plus assorted accessories. 
Thank you THS and Goodwill

Congratulations Garrett and Sam
