The high school students at Berean Christian School chose to spend time focusing on blessing others as the Thanksgiving and Christmas season begins.
Each year, the school’s chapter of the National Honor Society, led by Sheri Fyke, sponsors a food drive to help needy families in Palm Beach County.
Three local ministries benefited from this year’s food drive. More than 1,000 pounds of non-perishable foods were brought in by students Nov. 16-18. Students enjoyed working together to collect, sort, package and deliver food to help others.
Larry Starkey’s Bible class also enjoyed serving and blessing others this month by participating in the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child.
This event called for students to fill empty shoeboxes with a “wow” item, such as a doll or soccer ball, as well as school supplies, hygiene items and notes of encouragement.
“The idea of getting involved with Samaritan’s Purse came from our students,” Starkey said. “I’m so proud of our BCS Bible students for putting their faith into action by reaching out to underserved children.”
