Pembroke Hill students in early years through fifth grade are collecting items through November to use in assembling sack lunches for Harvesters. Bins are set up in the Hibschman Early Childhood Building, Primary Building and Intermediate Building to collect goods from now until Nov. 14.
Children in the lower school will put the sack lunches together in an assembly line format on Friday, Nov. 17, in the Primary Building basement on the Wornall Campus. Early childhood students are collecting goods for their building and will assemble the sacks in their classroom. The goal is to assemble 1,800 lunches.
"We are thrilled to be supporting Harvesters and the sack lunch program," said second grade teacher and organizer Alice Kroh. "It's a wonderful tradition at our school and we look forward each year to providing these sack lunches for those in need."
