Woodlawn gives back
by Staff Writer
MOORESVILLE – Seventh-graders at Woodlawn School recently teamed up with the Mooresville Soup Kitchen to volunteer and provide a real-world context for students’ Perspectives on Poverty unit, a part of the school’s service-learning curriculum.
The students spent a morning unloading trucks, serving hot lunches, scooping ice cream, handing out sweet tea, sweeping floors, and washing tables.
“It was enjoyable, but powerful,” student Stephen Holthouser said.
“Whenever we come to the soup kitchen, we get to see how little some people have, and even though we only get to do a little to help them, it is a powerful thing to experience,” student Ava Bruffey added.
