A couple of church youth groups from different states came together to assist a thriving third in Pennsylvania, helping to build a new greenhouse which will supply an area foodbank. At the new greenhouse, behind Carlisle High School, teens and their chaperones recently planted fruits and vegetables for the Project SHARE food bank in Carlisle. Teens from Harrisburg’s YouthWorks, as well as teens from the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts in Springfield, built raised beds and tried to till the garden’s rocky soil so they could help their brethren.
“You have youth from two different churches in two different states,” David Leigh, a father of one of the teen workers, told the Sentinel. “Yet they came together like they have been friends all their lives.”
