One student makes a difference


Anna CarterAnna Carter, a fifth grader at Cedar View, wanted to make a difference this holiday season so she asked her principal if she could conduct a food drive for families of soldiers who are deployed.
Anna set up collections boxes around the school and advertised with posters. She also went on the Cedar View Morning Show and asked student to consider contributing to this worthy cause. Students really rallied behind this request. Anna’s collection was enough to provide food for 72 military families and 8 non-military families.
Anna with Military menAnna not only collected the food but helped pack the boxes at her church. “During the holiday season it really is better to give than receive. I was able to meet several of the military families and it really left a good warm feeling inside of me,” said Anna.
What a wonderful person at the young age of 11 making such a difference in the community. Cedar View students have not only helped out with contribution but have learned about giving through Anna’s efforts.
