Families in Clermont County have more to eat this month thanks to the efforts of students at Live Oaks Career Campus in Milford.

A canning competition in the first two weeks of November between the Quarry Labs raised 2,985 food items and $ 135 in cash. Donations were distributed to Empower Youth and Milford Miami Ministry.

Students at the CNC Advanced Manufacturing lab collected the most items, followed by Heather Ackerman’s Health Technology Course and Stephanie Hoeppner’s Academy of Information Technology Course. “The IT Academy was winning every day until the last morning of collection, when the CNC Advanced Manufacturing lab scored a last minute victory with 452 additional items,” said Terri Rothfuss, Career Specialist at Live Oaks.

“Thank you very much to the staff and students of Live Oaks who have so generously donated canned food to support our weekend food packs and the Winter Wonderland family event,” said Scott Conley, co-founder of ‘Empower Youth. “Without the continued support of our community, many of the programs and outreach activities we conduct would not be possible. Thanks to your contributions, more than 150 families will be able to eat during the holiday season.

“The Milford Miami Ministry is fortunate to have a caring community,” said ministry director of operations Steve Reis. “A Christian organization led by 22 member churches, we cannot accomplish our mission of helping our neighbors in need without the help of local businesses, foundations, the community at large and of course our schools. ”

The Canned Food Contest was organized and managed by the Live Oaks Student Council, the Community Engagement Committee, and the CareerX class.
