(01/30/14) - Despite several snow days in a row, some Genesee County students continue to help those in need.
Two hundred students from St. Johns in Fenton filled the Center for Hope Gymnasium in Flint to make a difference.
"When you have something and others don't, you want to try your best to give them what they need," said student Lauren Cuneaz.
Some students are making blankets, while others made sandwiches and decorated cookies for area soup kitchens.
Their efforts are in celebration of Catholic Schools Week.
"We're just thankful that they chose us for today to give us that extra helping hand. We have a lot of extra helping hands today," said Vicky Schultz, of Catholic Charities.
Other hands were busy at the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. Students from Holy Rosary spent the morning sorting through food for families in need.
"That's what our school is about, trying to help others and help other people and not focus on our own needs," said Kayleigh O'Brien, Holy Rosary student.
