As a part of their annual fall service project, members of the Westland High School Student Council assembled approximately 100 emergency kits filled with hygienic items and school supplies that will be delivered to teenagers entering into the foster care system with Franklin County Children Services. The hygienic essentials were purchased with the student council’s funds while the school supplies were donated by a family friend of senior Mercy Shultz, pictured here on Nov. 3 assembling the last draw-string bag for the young adults. Schultz, who is also the president of the student council, said these fall service projects are an important undertaking for the club as it allows them to “step outside of our school community and help provide assistance to our local neighbors and neighborhoods.” Next month, they will assemble 100 more emergency kits to meet the needs of the younger children at FCCS. Past fall service projects include Coats for Kids, food drives for the local food pantry, and making personal protective equipment for the community.
