Leadership often means leading by example – and that’s what 21 members of the student government at Chief Sealth International High School did today. They went to the White Center Food Bank to help stock and distribute food.
It served as a team-building activity as well as a gift of time and energy, according to CSIHS’s Sam Reed, who oversees student government as well as other components of student life. And the entire Sealth community, including students’ families, will get the chance to give next week, in a canned-food drive to benefit the West Seattle Food Bank. The announcement explains:
Beginning Monday, December 10th, students and family members can drop off canned and packaged food items at a number of collection stations that will be set up around the school. Items will be collected and sorted by grade level, and the competition will tie in with the fun and school spirit that surrounds spirit week. The winning class will be announced during that Friday’s all-school spirit assembly. To raise the stakes, items will be collected to “protect” that respective grade level’s Class President; because at the assembly the non-winning presidents will receive whipped-cream pie to the face.
Lots of other giving opportunities around West Seattle this season too – we have an ever-growing list on the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide.
