The pandemic isn't putting a stop to the fight against hunger for the students of Lower Merion Township! They're rolling with the punches of COVID-19 and utilizing technology to rely on helping those who are hungry here in the City of Brotherly Love. They have come up with a way to serve the hungry community that is completely online!
According to 6abc,
The organization "Helping the Hungry Virtually" is run by teenagers from across the country. Thea Kerekes, 17, of Lower Merion High School in Montgomery County, is president of her local chapter. Kerekes and four of her friends take online donations for families who need short-term assistance.They use the money to mail out gift cards to grocery stores.
So far, the national organization has raised more than $11,000 and has helped over 150 families. But Kerekes says that with the help of the local community, we can slowly but surely help to put this crisis to an end!
