A North Dakota Christian school has collected nearly 1,500 pounds of donated nonperishable food items and over $650 in funds during an event to benefit a local food pantry.

Hope Christian Academy in Dickinson held the fundraiser spearheaded by Wendy Timmerman’s second-grade class on May 19. As the school year came to a close, Timmerman’s second-grade class decided to fulfill a service project for the community.

Following prayers about what they should embark on as a class, students picked the carnival fundraiser which they held in the school’s gymnasium to raise funds and gather food donations.

The gymnasium was transformed into a carnival theme and featured games, craft stations and baked goods. The class decided to invite Pre-K through 12th-grade students to join in donating nonperishable foods for the fundraiser.  (Excerpt from The Christian Post.)
