Santa Fe Christian School (SFC) students came together to help fight hunger in Africa during their Give Thanks, Give Back school-wide service event. SFC students exceeded their goal to pack 200,000 meals, packaging a total of 200,566 meals for orphan children in Tanzania. Over 1,500 SFC students, parents, faculty, and the Friends & Family Community Connection volunteered their time to ration dried goods to package the meals. “We feel fortunate to make this large contribution to children in need,” said Dr. Tom Bennett, Head of Schools for Santa Fe Christian Schools. “The support of all the volunteers helped us exceed our goal for the Children’s Community Center.” In exchange for the meals donated by the Children’s Community Center, the Tanzanian government provides school uniforms, financial assistance, and basic medical care for at-risk children.
