The Ray Lewis Family Foundation has donated 20 turkeys to the annual “It’s a Ton of Food” food drive in “honor” of one the schools most-giving students.
The turkeys will be delivered to the Orchard Ridge community in Baltimore City, “giving Orchard Ridge residents a head- start on Thanksgiving shopping,” according to a release.
St. Paul’s junor Jasmine Drummond, who is a participant in the Ray Lewis Kids of Character program was the catalyst for the donation.
“Jasmine was nominated and then selected as a Kids of Character model for getting high marks in several areas including academics, community service, and leadership,” the release states.
Drummond was “honored” for charitable efforts after collecting and donating 800 turkeys and other food to families in need on Nov. 15.
“Jasmine is a diligent student and an inquisitive young woman,” said Jeanne Blakeslee, director of diversity and leadership education at SPSG. “She asks great questions and works hard in all that she takes on. She has strong leadership potential and is well respected by her peers and our faculty. She contributes her time and talent not only in our school community but also in the larger community. She is indeed a young woman of character, and we are proud of her and her work with the Ray Lewis Kids of Character program.”
