RCA STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS
January 2018

RCA's dual enrollment students participated in two service projects during the week before their college classes began at Motlow State Community College. The students helped work at two community ministries: Hands of Mercy and Clothe Our Kids. At Hands of Mercy, the students loaded two trailers of food to be moved from a warehouse to First Baptist Church. The students also unloaded the food and shelved it in the benevolence pantry and packed over 200 backpack food packages for local children who do not have food on the weekends without the provision of school breakfasts and lunches. At Clothe Our Kids, the students moved clothing donations into the ministry's warehouse, helped sort clothes by size and season, and organized clothing bins.
