LEE COUNTY THEATRE STUDENTS COLLECT 3000 LBS. OF FOOD DONATIONS
Lee County High School‘s Thespian Troupe #5297 has collected almost 3000 pounds of food for the needy as part of this year’s national Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat community service program sponsored by the International Thespian Society and the Educational Theatre Association. Theatre honors students from Lee County High visited homes in neighborhoods across the Leesburg/Albany area on Halloween to accept donations from generous families to support Second Harvest food bank of South Georgia.
This is the first year that Lee County’s Thespians have joined the national Trick-or-Treat So Kids Can Eat effort, but they hope to make it an annual project. More than 20 students in the Thespian honor society at LCHS, assisted by two parent volunteers, coordinated the group’s effort to collect both food and monetary donations to aid local families in need as the holiday season approaches.
