Area high school students pair up with Sherman Phoenix to provide meals to frontline workers
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Local high school students have teamed up with restaurants in MIlwaukee's Sherman Phoenix neighborhood to salute frontline workers.
Students from Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy partnered with Funky Fresh Spring Rolls and Confectionately Yours to prepare and deliver meals to local organizations.
Organizers say it's just another way to show their appreciation to people on the frontlines of the pandemic.
"Initially what we wanted to do was get some of our students engaged," Ajamou Butler, a parent liason at Dr. Howard Fuller Collegiate Academy said. "We know there's a lot going on with social justice issues and covid-19 and what not, so we wanted to get our kid hands-on involved in a project that could just give back some love and positivity in those areas."
The students raised $1,000 through a car wash in order to pay for the meals.
They were delivered to four organizations, including Froedtert Hospital and the Milwaukee Women's Center.
