Every year, Antioch Community High School participates in a food drive to help collect nonperishable food items or money to help fight local hunger. Even with the donations that each class participating makes, more is still needed to feed the hungry in the area. It is important for students to be actively involved in collecting donations for this food drive because every little bit makes a huge impact. Involving oneself in community service fighting the issues that members of the community face has many positive benefits for students. There are several ways to collect donations for the ACHS food drive in the most effective manner. Students can best appeal to their audience by asking groups or people that think highly of them, framing the message in a way that resembles the idea being a popular action to take, and making the message have a sense of urgency to it. It is also very helpful to add facts and statistics about hunger in the messages to get the audience to think further about the issue. These are just a few ways to help get the most donations during the food drive and consequently fight hunger on a local level with fellow members of the community. As a former ACHS student, this cause is personally meaningful to me because having the food drive helped raise awareness on the issue of hunger and other problems within the community that I was not necessarily aware of before. Doing my best to help those in need is a very rewarding experience and can be done time and time again to help others. The ACHS food drive is a great place to start in making a real impact in the community we live in.

Sincerely,

Sarah Colette
