The “passion project” that I worked on last year was with my friend. We were really interested in helping the homeless so we decided to do something about it and we created a fundraiser here at Thoroughgood where people dropped off cans of nonperishable food. We actually had so much food that the food bank couldn’t take it all so we gave some to the Hood Operation. That was really cool. They said they could use our help so we gave the rest of it to them.
What inspired you to help the homeless?
They had these U.N. goals [in class] and some of them were poverty or helping the ocean. We decided that [helping the homeless] was the one that interested us the most. We did some research and then put our plan into action.
What did you like the best about the project?
I just like seeing everybody donating things and that they really cared about the homeless. I just really liked that.
