2020 Rogers Scholar Sarah Campbell organized a “Friends in Need” food drive for families of students at Hazard High School.

She coordinated the Rogers Scholars community service project in partnership with Food City and the school’s Youth Service Center. Food City customers donated food items or could purchase a pre-packaged bag of food to support “Friends in Need.”

“It was an eye-opening experience to learn that so many of my peers and their families struggled with not having enough to eat. I really appreciate the help from the Youth Service Center and Food City.”

Each graduate of The Center for Rural Development’s Rogers Scholars program is required to complete a community service project. For more information about Rogers Scholars, visit www.centeryouthprograms.com.
