Three weeks ago, Ridgely Middle School students set out to collect 2,000 pounds of non-perishable food for needy families in Baltimore County.
"But we largely surpassed that," said student council adviser Susan Smith.
Smith stood by a county school bus today, after inviting community members to contribute to the students' haul.
By 1 p.m., the school had collected 2,800 pounds for the Community Assistance Network
Congratulations to the students, parents and faculty at Ridgely Middle School.
