TPS students donate trucks of food to Cherry Street Mission

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

On Friday, Toledo Public Schools students made a special delivery to help those in need.

The students who are part of the Young Men and Women of Excellence groups at TPS showed up at the Cherry Street Mission with food by the truckload. They had more than 300 cases of canned goods to donate to the food pantry. People at the Cherry Street Mission say that donation couldn't have come at a better time.

The students took on the service project and collected boxes upon boxes of food. The mission says lots of people have been utilizing the food pantry due to the cuts in food stamp benefits, and they say every bit helps.

"We're just serving people. People like you, people like me," said Shawn Kellerbauer of the Cherry Street Mission. "It's really good because it breaks down the fear of coming downtown. It breaks down the fear of, ‘Oh, those people,' ‘they' and ‘them.' It's all just people, so it's really awesome to have the kids come in, because a lot of these kids will be back volunteering sometime."

The mission says sometimes operations get tight after the holidays when donations slow, but this boost from TPS will carry them through the holiday season and months ahead.
