Kids Against Hunger
Students and teachers from the Ojibwe Charter School together with LSSU students, faculty and staff packed meal kits for people in impoverished areas of the world in the Michigan Campus Compact and Gear Up sponsored "Kids Against Hunger" service-learning project. Students from Sault Area High School also packed meals kits earlier in the day. Together 20,000 kits were packed, estimated to feed 120,000 people. Mentoring moments like these which unite high school students and LSSU students help the LSSU students see the importance of their own education while assisting secondary students develop a college-going vision for themselves as well.
