Lexington Two schools gave back to the community in a big way
West Columbia, S.C. -- Lexington Two schools gave back to the community in a big way during this month’s Souper Bowl of Caring, collecting 5,240 cans and other nonperishable foods.
The donations translated into more than 5,000 pounds of food that will provide just over 4,000 meals for those in need in the local community, according to Harvest Hope Food Bank’s Kristy McLellan.
Lexington Two is the first public school district in Lexington County to have all of its schools participate in the Souper Bowl of Caring. The event, started in 1990 in Columbia, is today a nationwide campaign to raise awareness about hunger.
