On Apr. 17 students and faculty crowded the atrium to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to donate to the Miami Rescue Mission.  The service club Smiling Tummies, sponsored this event where everyone was invited to come during their advisory period and lunch to make sandwiches to feed the homeless.

“The sandwich drive goes to Miami Rescue Mission; the club that we’re organizing it through is Smiling Tummies. This is is our fourth time doing the large event, and we had one year before that where we didn’t have the big atrium event, ”  said Mr. Griffin, the sponsor of the Smiling Tummies club.

Tables were set up around the atrium, serving as stations for different clubs and sports to prepare the sandwiches. Students donated items throughout the week, in preparation for the event. Many came out to support the cause.

“I decided to make sandwiches because I wanted to help the homeless people and you know, provide food,” sophomore Daniel Thompson said.

By the end of the event, Smiling Tummies had a record-breaking sandwich count to donate to the Miami Rescue Mission.

“Without the enthusiasm of the students, there is no event. Due to the strong enthusiasm of the students this year specifically, we broke the record of sandwiches made, with 5,826 sandwiches,” social science teacher and Smiling Tummies club sponsor Patrick Griffin said.
