In the spirit of the holiday season, Education Support Professionals represented by ACE-AFSCME Local 2250 served a holiday meal to the residents of Prince George House. The meal was prepared by the certified Culinary Arts students of PGCPS as part of their community service project and made possible by donations from Teddy Bear Farms, Albright Farms, and ACE-AFSCME Local 2250.
“During the holiday season of giving, we wanted to do something special for the less fortunate members of our community,” said Kevin Grant, a Bus Driver for PGCPS and Coordinator of the Holiday Dinner. “We believe in public service as that is what we do every day. Bringing a smile to our neighbors faces any day but especially during the holidays, brings us much joy and makes us smile too.”
“The students were very excited to give back to their community and put their culinary skills to good use by preparing this special holiday meal. They see it as being part of the true spirit of the Holiday Season,” said Melissa Richardson, Instruction Coordinator at PGCPS College & Career Readiness Programs.
Mr. Grant said “We’d like to thank all the volunteers, students and partners who helped make this special event a reality. Happy Holidays and New Year to all!”
