Elementary students make sandwiches for the homeless

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Elementary students in Pitt County are working to make a difference this Thanksgiving.

Creekside Elementary School students got an early start Tuesday morning, preparing meals for people at the Greenville Community Shelter.
     
Forming an assembly line, the students prepared meals for 72 people to enjoy this holiday.

"We made sandwiches to help the people at the shelter because the people at the shelter don't have food or don't have a home,” said Mason Cooper, student.

"We are trying to give then sandwiches so whenever they run out of food they still have some,” said Will Brown, student.

School administrators say the students came up with the idea after thinking long and hard about how to help others this Thanksgiving.
