CHA students and Bluegill Optimists give We Care a facelift

ST HELEN- On June 11, nine high school students from the Charlton Heston Academy (CHA) put aside their Saturday plans and came out to help the Bluegill Optimists Club of St. Helen give the We Care’ We Feed Pantry a new look.

Working with CHA History Teacher Heather Bozzo, the Optimists provided the equipment and were able to give students Community Service hours which are needed for Graduation.

At the same time, other members of the Optimists club were at the Marketplace collecting food for the pantry. There will be more collections set up at various events by various St. Helen organizations. Keep an eye out at the Marketplace which is every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. between the Peach Pit and Faith Alive Church on St. Helen Road .

We Care is sponsoring the We Feed Food Drive at the Marketplace on June 26. Bring in five food items or more and you will get to throw a pie in the face of a We Care staff member.

St. Helen Helping Hands is hosting a 5K Fun Run (or walk) by Lake St. Helen on July 9. Registration forms are available on their website. The cost is $45 for the family plan which includes two adults and all kids under 12. Cost for kids 13 and up is an additional 5 dollars per kid.

To sign up for the walk go to Sthelenhelpinghands.org and sign up or mail your form in.. Don’t forget your pets can walk with you or run the cost for the pet is only one can of human food (Note: Pet must have current tags or shot record).

You’ll also be able to purchase a pie for $3 or a water blaster for $5 and be able to hit We Care President, John Sutter with a pie. Proceeds will help pay bills at the pantry.

July 15th Sutter will be on the roof of We Care collecting donations to either keep him up on the roof, or get him down. He is willing to be up there Friday through Sunday. There will also be a spot down at the Bluegill Festival to explain the goals and ideals of the organization.

Easier access to the public and larger storage space has helped ‘We Feed’ service more people through May 1 than it did all year 2015.
