American Legion students give back to the community

e-Connections Post American Legion

American Legion High School students completed two community service projects before winter break, giving back to those in need in their community.

The school’s Men’s Leadership Academy and Student Government classes led a Holiday Food Drive, encouraging their peers to bring non-perishable food to school for distribution to the Sacramento Food Bank.

Several hundred pounds of food were donated, and five American Legion families were among the recipients.

Also, American Legion partnered with BloodSource to organize a blood drive. Legion plans to stage a blood drive twice a year, and this year Legion broke the school record for most units of blood collected.

American Legion students are always willing to participate when given the chance to give back!
