SAS Kendall Students Deliver
Miami, October 19, 2012 -
On October 19, School for Advanced Studies Kendall Campus students delivered $1200.00 worth of food collections to the orphanage at His House Children's Home. During the month of September and October, SAS Kendall students were encouraged to bring in food items such as cereals, granola bars, peanut butter, and jelly. They needed things that would make a quick easy meal and wouldn't expire too soon. Students donated over 400 food products for the benefit of the children at His House.
SAS Kendall students Vasisth SewnarainSukul and Angelica Krauss delivered the donations to the center along with SAS staff members James Coats and Samay Alvarez. The donations helped transform an empty pantry into a packed kitchen with almost no space left to walk in.
After the donations were delivered and placed in the pantry, the SAS students toured one of the homes where over 100 children live. The children there sleep 4 or 5 to a room up until they reach the age of 18 and are ready to go out on their own. The IKEA company donates beds, linens, and whatever needs to be replaced due to daily wear. In this particular home, there were 13 children between the ages of 2 and 13.
The SAS students who delivered the food were sad to see children who do not have the benefit of parents or family members to care for them, but glad they and their SAS classmates could do something to help and they were grateful that His House provides caring volunteers for the kids. They look forward to doing more to help these children at His House due to the great feeling of satisfaction they received in this experience.
