Caring Community project a success

The Tyrone Area Elementary School’s annual Caring Community project collected 26 boxes full of food for the Tyrone Food Bank this past Monday and Tuesday. All students and their families were invited to participate by bringing in one item or more from a list that included: canned goods, cereal, peanut butter, jelly, pasta and spaghetti sauce. TAES teachers also gave students a piece of construction paper on which they wrote one way they show how they care about others, and then signed their names. The younger students were encouraged to think of a way they show they care about others while signing their names. The staff was also invited to participate in the project. TAES school counselors Dani Simmons and Kim Eaken both said, “When we work together as a school and community to help each other we can accomplish great results. The Tyrone Food Bank sincerely appreciates our help each year to take care of our neighbors in Tyrone.” Pictured above are students who participated in the food collection: Rochel Steele, Andrew Tyler and T.J. Mills, holding several food items raised by the students. Missing from the photo was student Katelyn Richards, who also assisted in the food collection. (The Daily Herald/Kris Yaniello)
