North Ridge Elementary students give to the community

Students at North Ridge Elementary School gave back to the community on Friday by combining Earth Day and fighting hunger to make a difference here on the South Plains.

The students decorated about 700 recycled milk cartons and filled them with food to donate to the South Plains Food Bank.

However, they went one step further by each writing a note to be included with their carton.

"It's just a message to the people that we work with that there are people in our community who care and they're making life fun for everybody. And I think about the children and the seniors - the different people that will get this and I just think about how it's going to brighten their day and just be so special for everybody." says David Weaver CEO of the South Plains Food Bank.

The South Plains Food Bank will give the decorated cartons along with the messages and the food to clients.
