Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
What began as a project for Mrs. Jennifer Dooley’s AP English class has now turned into a group of friends continuing to give back to the community from which they were raised.
Edmonson County High School students: Cheyenne Gibson, Brittany Simmons, Sidney Tennison, Katie Hogan, Katelynn Mencer, Cheyanne Johnson, Callie Willis, Julia Jurisich and Chloe Collins hosted their first soup kitchen at Brownsville Community Center on March 8th, 2019.
“We all do our own part, “said Treasurer Cheyenne Gibson. “We all make and serve the food, hang flyers and speak with people about sponsorship and advertisement."
In March, the ladies served approximately 70-80 people and are planning to serve even more at their next meal on April 12th from 4pm to 7pm.
“We want to reach more people to make sure everybody at least has a safe place and warm meal once in a while,” said Cheyenne. “We plan to continue this even after school gets out and to turn this into a monthly occurrence.”
