Sixth-graders work with Trenton Area Soup Kitchen

Sixth-grade students, in an effort to reach out to the community beyond The Pennington School and show their care and concern, worked recently with the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK).

Students learned about TASK's mission, completed chores in their own homes and neighborhoods to earn money, then used those funds to purchase needed supplies for TASK from Pennington Quality Market. Careful to budget and shop wisely, students bought both grocery and hygiene items to help support the biggest needs on TASK's donation wish list. Cooperatively shopping with their classmates, students demonstrated that every little contribution from just one person can indeed add up to make a big impact on a community.
