John Lawrence Elementary assists Trinity High student in food drive

Trinity High student leads food drive Trinity High student leads food drive

As part of his project for the Asheboro-Randolph Chamber of Commerce’s Student LIFT program, Trinity High School junior Charlie McKeown collected cans for Community Outreach of Archdale-Trinity (COAT).

The experience has been especially rewarding for Charlie, and the Randolph County School System has provided wonderful support in this endeavor. Charlie set a goal at the beginning of the project to collect 1500 cans of food, but after realizing at the midway point that he wasn’t close to this goal, he adjusted it to 1000 cans.

Charlie contacted Interim Principal at Anthony Warden at John Lawrence Elementary School (Charlie’s elementary school ‘alma mater’), who quickly agreed to allow Charlie to conduct a food drive at his school. With the help of Mr. Warden and the school’s media coordinator, Kathy Somero, Charlie was able to reach his original goal of 1500 cans! 

In two weeks, John Lawrence Elementary School collected almost 850 cans of food to help support COAT and Charlie’s project. Mrs. Somero was integral to the success of the campaign, coordinating the event on site and challenging the kids and teachers to participate.

Charlie has gained much confidence from the LIFT experience altogether, but the success of this particular project has been powerful for him. He could not have done it without the help of the John Lawrence Elementary staff and administration.

Thank you, Randolph County! Thank you, also, to Trinity High School for allowing Charlie to be absent once a month and to John Lawrence Elementary for taking care of one of their own!
