Students in Fayette County Collect Thousands of Canned Goods For The Hungry

Students at a school in Oak Hill are making a difference this holiday season.

The Fayette County Institute of Technology has been collecting non-perishable foods for several years, and this year they collected around 10,000 items making this the most they've ever had. All of the food they collect goes to the Warm Hands from Warm Hearts Center for Hope in Oak Hill. Then they will distribute food to people in need, or people can come collect food at the center. Junior at FIT, Shytail Clay, said he hopes that their school can encourage others to help out.

"It's starts with one person to make a difference, and in this case it starts with one school and since we're starting this off hopefully other vo techs and other schools will hopefully contribute and do something like this also," Clay said. 

The food was packed up and will be distributed to people throughout Fayette County. The Warm Hands from Warm Hearts Center of Hope is open on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 5-8 p.m. If you're in need of food for the holidays you can pick it up at the center at 319 Main Street East in Oak Hill.
