Faith Mission Receives a Generous Donation

Faith Mission in Elkhart received its largest donation this year.

Students at Elkhart Christian Academy have been collecting canned goods since the beginning of December.

Friday, they presented the canned goods to Faith Mission and made a special Christmas tree from the cans.

“We've done this as long as I’ve been here. We start at the beginning of December and it’s kind of a competition between the grades to see who can bring in the most cans for Faith Mission,” explains Audra Lehman, Senior.

“There’s a lot of food drives and people throughout the year that donate, but this is our single biggest best drive of the year,” says Ross Swihart, Faith Mission.

Faith Mission used to pick-up the canned goods with just one pick-up truck.

This year, they have two trucks and a van and may need to make a second trip.
