C.K. McClatchy High School student Mitchell Lee was awarded the DOVIA Margaret Einspahr Youth Award from Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services on April 11.

Mitchell  has volunteered with the food bank’s clothing programs since 2011.  Last year, he organized several donation drives, including a shoe drive which gathered an astonishing 700 pairs of shoes to help families in need.

A member of the food bank’s Youth Committee, Mitchell works to engage other youth in philanthropy and volunteerism.

According to food bank officials, “He is full of enthusiasm and empathy, which is uncommon to see in a high school student.”
