HCCSC donated approximately 15,000 food items to the Salvation Army through the corporation's annual food drive.On Friday, Dec. 11, HCCSC concluded its annual Salvation Army canned food drive. This year’s food drive was a great success and served as another example of the kindness and support we have from our Huntington County community.

It is very powerful when the community can come together and contribute for a common purpose. The “what” we do and the “how” we do it are the easy and more tangible things we can see and remember.

Some of those examples include the approximately 15,000 canned food items and almost $3,500 collected at our schools; the individuals who: contributed, packed boxes, picked up/delivered, counted/sorted and led campaigns.

Crestview Principal Chuck Werth, the organizer of the food drive, would like to thank all of the participating schools for their contributions and efforts: Huntington North High School, Crestview Middle School, Riverview Middle School, Andrews, Flint Springs, Horace Mann, Lincoln and Roanoke Elementary Schools, plus the The Learning Center and HCCSC Transportation Department.

Werth would also like to thank the individuals who helped on the pick up day: Huntington North Assistant Principal Rod Richison, many HCCSC students and the Fire Crew at Station 1 in Huntington. The efforts made were greatly needed and thoroughly appreciated.

Finally, a special thank you goes to Juergens Do it Best with Dan and Brandon Juergens providing a truck for the food drive pick up. This is the 21st year that they have provided HCCSC with this service free of charge for the benefit of our community.

Most importantly, the “why” of this endeavor is that it helps change and shape the lives of others. The lives of those who are changed are not only the ones who receive, but the ones who give. You cannot easily see or grasp “why” because it is internally driven and more intangible. Werth thanks everyone for “why” they participated in this year’s Salvation Army canned food drive. Because of the “why,” others will be blessed this holiday season.
