Students "boxing it up" for families in need

BRIDGEPORT, W. Va. (WDTV) -- Last month students from the Bridgeport High School Key Club took on a big project to help feed families in need on Thanksgiving. On Monday they got to work and started boxing it up.

Students and volunteers met at the Shop-n-Save in Bridgeport to box cans of food, pies and other tasty items that you can find on any Thanksgiving table. All these items will be distributed to families at the Clarksburg Mission, and through the Harrison County Backpack Program and Shepherd's Corner.

Student Hannah Povroznik, who is the project chairman, says she's amazed on how everyone came together to help others and wants to this project to expand to other schools.

"The plan next year is to continue to expand this project throughout the state of West Virginia, whether that's multiple counties where we live and multiple school districts," Hannah said.

She said they already had a student from Robert C. Byrd there who was interested in spreading it to that school.
