The Salvation Army was so munch fun. We did lots of
work. 14 class mates and I went. First Mrs. Brown showed
us how to stack the food nicely. We had to put 1 can of
green beans, 1 can of corn, 1 can of fruit, 1 can of
soup, 1 Mac and Cheese box, 1 potato box, 1 box meal, 1
stuffing box, 1 Jiffy mix box, 1 Jello mix, 1 cereal
box, and a handful of candy. We made 900 plus bags. It
was hard work, but so fun!
When we want to the Salvation army. We want to pack food
for people that can't afford to get there on food. We
packed over nine-hundred plus bags. We were there for a
long time. It was fun because we had to crush card
board. We had to do hard work to pack the food. I was
the one how was in the back were we were staking them
at. There was a truck that cam and piked up some of the
bags. It was fun there because we were helping out
families that needed food for diner.
Helping at the Salvation Army was lots of fun. We filled
over nine hundred bags full of food. I did every job
there was. I stacked Green Beans, Corn, Fruit, Soup,
Macaroni and Cheese, Skillet dinners, Mash Potatoes,
Muffins, Cereal and Jello. I was pretty tired after it.
I fell asleep so fast that night. I was starving by the
time we got to eat. Fifteen people got to go. They were
Emma, Sydnee, Alli, Colleen, Hanna, Savannah, Maggie,
Justin, Cody, Travis, Austin, Ian, Eleanor, Aaron and
me. We were more than half way done by the time the
truck got there.
I had so much fun at Salvation Army! We had to pack a
lot of bags full of beans, corn, fruit, soup, mac and
cheese, potatoes, stuffing, muffin mix, jello, three
musketeers, and a cereal box. It was a lot of work. We
didn't have a certain place to work at. There was a bag
stacking spot, and other people would restock the food,
there was also a cardboard spot, where you cut the
cardboard boxes up. first we had reusable bags then we
had paper bags. The paper bags ripped a lot. At the end
we ended up making 900 plus. That's the most anyone has
ever made in Mrs. Brown's classroom. I had a lot of fun
at Salvation Army!
On December 11 some of my class went to Salvation Army.
Only half of my class could go because only half of us
could fit. First we took the bus to Salvation Army. Then
we got off the bus and went inside. A lady greeted us at
the door. She should us where to put our coats and
talked about what our job was going to be. Our job was
helping people that need Christmas dinner. o we were
going to make bag fulls of food to the. There was a big
table with food on it. After she was done we got to
work. We all helped out. We worked and worked. Then we
had pizza for lunch. Then we got back to work. At the
end of the day we made 900 bags or more. I was really
happy with what we did. We helped all those families who
maybe other wise would not have Christmas dinner. I
would do it all over again to help them.
