There is a need and these students wanted to help.
Airport High School’s Student Government and the Scooter Scott Project were sponsors of a project to feed families in the local communities for Thanksgiving. The effort was announced in a Lexington Two Schools release, Tuesday.
Airport students, local businesses and Scooter Scott Project Partners came together to feed 65 families for the Thanksgiving break, Nov. 27-30. Baskets included items for Thanksgiving meals, household goods, snacks and all families received a hearty, cooked and seasoned turkey. Baskets were packed by Student Government members, volunteers and Scooter Scott Project Friends.
Airport will continue the feeding of our families from the school, Fulmer Middle and the Scooter Scott Project over Christmas break. Donations can be dropped off in the main office of Airport High School through Dec. 15.
"To be part of a Lexington Two family that gives back to others, right here in our community, is just one more reason why I choose to live, work and serve those in Cayce-West Columbia,” said Airport teacher and student activities director Daniel Bailey.
