Help For Food Bank? Patriot BPA Students On It!

The San Antonio Food Bank is an organization that does so much good for the entire south central Texas area. They always are open to help either in donations or just some muscle to organize and move items. The Business and Professionals of America chapter and members of the Principals of Business, Marketing and Finance at Veterans Memorial High School stepped up to the challenge and spent a day recently helping out. They used some of that youthful energy sorting, inspecting and packing boxes so the Food Bank is prepared for those who need it. In the end, they packed 9,540 pounds of food that will support some 7,000 families in the Bexar County and surrounding area.   BPA Vice President Sabrina Lagrimanta encourages others to help out and pay forward the blessings they have, "it was amazing to see how much food was donated and the work it takes to organize everything."
