During the month of January, eighth-grade teacher Mary-Lynn Karpenske at Oldfield Middle School hosted a “Souper Bowl” food drive.

Each month, Ms. Karpenske challenges her students to tackle a “mission possible” that encourages them to give back to the community, or to build character. This month, their mission was inspired by the “Souper Bowl of Caring,” which is a youth-led movement to help hungry and hurting people around the world. Throughout January, Ms. Karpenske’s eighth-graders collected canned goods to contribute to HACO.

“It feels good to give back,” said Isha, an eighth-grader at Oldfield Middle School, “and it makes me proud to be a part of the Harborfields community.”
