To the Editor:
The Carrollton FFA would like to thank all who supported the first ever Box City at Carrollton High School. The event was very successful and we are happy to report with the generous community sponsors, we were able to donated $2,500 to the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry.

We had 25 students from CHS who experienced homelessness for the night. Students from the Minerva FFA also participated in the event. The Minerva Chapter donated $2,200 to the St. Paul’s Lutheran Church for their food bank.

We want to extend a special thank you for the ladies from the Church of Christ who provided a “soup kitchen” with soup, hot chocolate and delicious cupcakes for our homeless students. Also we greatly appreciate D&D TV and Appliance for saving boxes to supply homes for the students.

Overall, the event was enjoyed by the students and we truly are thankful for the support we received.
