Captains Chelsey Maus, junior ;St. John's Prep students package food Recently, a group of St. John's Prep middle school students used their hands to help feed the world. A group of students in MaryAnder- son's sixth-grade class volunteered their time 'to Kids Against Hun- ger, an organization that feeds malnour- ished families across the globe. The students spent an afternoon filling bags containing rice, soy, vegetables, and chicken flavored vita- min and mineral pow- der to send to families in Guatemala. Just one bag of this mixture can feed a family of six, showing the students just how much of an impact a few hands can make. Kids Against Hunger also taught the stu- dents about the lives of those they were feed- ing. The sixth-grade students participated in activities which educated them about different consequences of poor living conditions such as disease, shortened life span, and lack of health necessities. Students of St. John's Prep filling food bags for Kids Against Hun- ger are from L to R: Rose Zahn of St. Cloud, Ella Motzko of St. Cloud, Unidentified-friend of student, Finnian Jacobson-Schulte of Sartell, Kyra Hulsebus of Sartell, and Matthew Arnold of Kimball. Submitted photo. The students also learned the importance of looking beyond themselves and helping those less fortunate. Participant, Finn Jac0bson- Schulte, reflected on the experience saying, "It was awesome to know we were helping some- one who really needs it and having fun at the same time." Each of the students said they look forward to packaging food again. in..i.i OLD MONEY COINS WheatPennieSGold Coins Silver Col., a.d Ol er R rs coi.s Kennedy Clad Half Dollars (1965 - 1970) v! ~!' :~:~ y Foreign Coins Silver Dollars - Morgan and Peace Dollars Mint and Proof Coins Certified Coins - PCGS, ANC, NGC and~Others - US and Foreign Large and Small Coin Collections ~ Canadian Silver Coins GSA Carson City (CC) Silver Dollars ~ Commerative Coins Indian Head Pennies Coins in Plastic Holders V, Buffalo and War Nickels All Types of Coins OMer Paper Money - 1929 and National Currency Fractional Currsny Confederate Currency Silver and Gold Certificates Old Currency With Bank Names On Them GOLD AND JEWELRY Dental GoM, Scrap Gold, 10K, 141(, 18K, 22K, 24K Nugget Jewelry Filigree Rings Old Class Rings Platinum Jewelry Wedding Rings Charm Bracelets Industrial GoM Old Garnet Jewelry Broken Jewelry Old Mountings Antique Jewelry Bracelets and Necklaces I I, ' GOLD AND SILVER BULLION American Eagles Canadian Maple Leafs Krugerrsnds Gold Art Bars .999 Silver - 100 oz., 10 o'z, and 1 oz.
