Rockville elementary school collects food for homeless

The Ritchie Park Elementary School PTA held its 10th annual Community Service Snack Sacks for the Homeless Event on March 27.

Parents and students gathered at the Rockville school to assemble 250 sandwiches and meal bags for the Women’s Shelter in Rockville that’s operated by Interfaith Works. Helpers also made crafts for the children at the Children’s Inn at NIH.

Students were asked to bring in donated food throughout the week. The PTA also collected dog and cat treats for the Montgomery County Humane Society.

Local grocers and restaurants also contributed to the effort.
