TKA 8th Grade Students Show Their Gratitude

On behalf of The King’s Academy’s 8th grade class, Student Council members CJ Ruiz, Luke Ramos, and Marlo Lacy delivered 50 Olive Garden meals to the frontline healthcare workers in the ICU, ER, and North departments at Wellington Regional Hospital this week. The idea began as Student Council members were discussing how heartbreaking the Covid-19 pandemic is and how brave the frontline healthcare workers are for directly combating the virus.

Their discussion quickly turned into a plan that included a “Thank you” banner and meal delivery during a shift change at the hospital. When asked about the idea, CJ Ruiz said, “We wanted to give back…It is the very least we could do for those who put their lives on the line every day to help make our community safer.”
