On Nov. 2, students in District 88’s Transition Program, an extension of the high school curriculum for students between the ages of 19 and 22 with developmental disabilities, volunteered to help stock a local food pantry.
Students were responsible for collected donated canned goods from the community and helped stock the food pantry at the Humanitarian Service Project in Carol Stream.
Between Oct. 29 and Nov. 2, students in the transition program collected cans, which will go to feed 150 local families.
District 88’s transition program helps students from the Addison, Villa Park and Lombard communities learn life skills, obtain job training and transition into adult life after District 88.
