Santa Monica, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/04/2012 -- The students and parents of Delphi Academy in Santa Monica held a food drive to support the Shiekh Youth and Community Center in Compton, CA last Wednesday. The center was established in July of this year and provides intervention/remedial opportunities, as well as enrichment opportunities primarily to middle and high school students, all free of charge.
Some of the students went in a caravan with their parents to deliver and distribute the items the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.
“It was fun to take out the bags of food and give it to the people at the center,” said one of the elementary-aged students who went.
