Grade school students dump truck-load of supplies off to HALO
North Salisbury School and their Destination Imagination group continue to make a huge difference in the community, as they donated their much-anticipated goods and funds to HALO.
The grade-schoolers raised money and items in school and at the Fruitland Walmart. They collected over 2,000 rolls of toilet paper, filled 280 homeless kits with hygiene products, also donating canned food.
Fourth grader Joshua Strickland says it means a lot to have done so much, after spending so much time on this, part of their Destination Imagination project.
"It was very cold (at Fruitland Walmart), but I was glad that a lot of people came and donated, and when the people who did donate I was really happy that they would," says North Salisbury student Julia Gore.
