Carlisle eighth graders help feed the homeless

Prior to Thanksgiving break, the eighth-grade Breakfast Club groups joined together to help the Salvation Army. Breakfast Club takes place on Friday mornings when eighth graders break into groups to work on projects and discuss different topics. The eighth graders were presented with the idea to create Thanksgiving boxes for the homeless. They decided to go for it and soon created 26 heart-filled boxes. Each box was equipped with a turkey, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce, rice and many other thoughtful items. The eighth graders' efforts were greatly appreciated by all.
