On Saturday, Nov. 23, College For Every Student (CFES) students at Lincoln Elementary spent eight hours in front of Walmart collecting donations for the Abraham Connection homeless shelter. Due to a generous community, the CFES students were able to collect 26 boxes of clothing, 14 boxes of food and $400 to donate to the Abraham Connection in Delta.
"We would like to thank Walmart for allowing us to set up our campaign at their store and provide the boxes to transfer the goods," said assistant principal Tammy Shelton. "We would also like to thank the parents for ensuring that their students were able to participate. Although we may have had cold noses, our hearts were warmed by the generosity of the community."
