On Nov. 21, the Forbush High School JROTC cadets took their Saturday to support the local community “Friends Feeding Friends” program at the Lowes Foods of Yadkinville.
Friends Feeding Friends is a community-wide food drive. The Forbush cadets helped out Lowes Foods by asking patrons to support this program by purchasing prepackaged bags of food. Additionally, the cadets helped support the store manager’s Toys for Tots program, sponsored by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, which provides toys to children at Christmas.
The cadets supported the event which lasted from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.on Saturday with each cadet volunteering anywhere from two to eight hours.
How does Friends Feeding Friends help the community? Cadet Staff Sgt. Jacob Ridings said, “This brings a new meaning to the word ‘helping’ by showing how one simple task can make a big difference.”
Cadet Cpl. Christopher Sanchez commented, “It helped us work together as one for a greater cause.”
