Our students love doing good things for the community.
A while back, we posted about our community project: Smart Pantry for Families in Need. After pouring concrete footing, and quite a bit of work to get the pantry itself functional, our students painted it proudly in Bronco colors and installed it just in time for Thanksgiving!
It's located half way between STRIVE Prep - Excel and North High School (exact location here). Above is a photo of one of our community members adding a box of non-perishable food to the pantry.
The idea here is simple: if you have extra, leave some. If you need some, take some. The next addition to the pantry will be some smart technology that the kids are designing (more on this in a future post).
We're currently wrapping up partnership talks with the Food Bank to collaborate with us on this, so look for more news coming on that front as well!
Thanks so much, first and foremost to our students who put hard work into this, as well as to Jesse White, Megan Ross, Nhi To, and to administrators at both STRIVE Prep - Excel and North High School. You're all amazing!
