The Leadership Development Corps (LDC) from Space Center Intermediate and Clear Creek Intermediate School teamed up with Chef’s Table Houston, a non-profit agency that aids students and teachers in times of peace and crisis located in Galveston County. The collaboration between both schools was aimed towards helping those affected by the recent government shutdown.

COLLECTED DONATIONS:

The LDC students collected donations at both intermediate schools from January 21 through 25. Within this week, the groups were able to collect 40 boxes of canned goods, hygiene products, cleaning supplies and close to $1,000 in gift cards. Alejandro Adame, one of the cadets and his family contributed $600 worth of Visa gift cards as a single donation to the drive.

“I couldn’t be more proud of my Cadets for their citizenship, and stepping up for others in need. If our current community leaders and elected officials are seeing this, I’m sure they’ll agree that the prospect of our future is looking bright, because these young men and women are the ones they’re passing the torch to,” said Roswell Sartwell, Leadership Development Corps Instructor.

CCISD FOOD DRIVE:
The Clear Creek Independent School District is hosting a food drive this week in support of our affected families. Please see the attached flyer for information on how you can make a donation. ccisd-cares-food-drive.png Donations will be brought to Interfaith Caring Ministries, a non-profit agency, for distribution.
