Seitz student helps the homeless

Keira Wood, a 7th grader at Seitz Middle School in Riverview, decided for her 13th birthday to do a pop can drive in order to raise money to help the homeless.

The project was organized with the help of Megan Frost, adviser of Builder’s Club at the school. Incentives for students included that whichever individual student brought in the most cans would get a $10 gift card to a location of their choice, and whichever teacher’s 7th hour collectively brought in the most cans will win a pizza party.

The community donations raised approximately $500 that will be used to purchase necessities for the homeless that will be distributed by R.A.I.N.A., which stands for Reaching All In Need of Assistance.
