Wheeling Park Students Honor the Victims of Sandy Hook With Good Deeds to Community

Posted: Updated:

It's the perfect time of year to give thanks, and a small group of students from Wheeling Park High School are showing just how thankful they are, but for different reasons.

Almost one year ago the country was rocked after a gunman took several lives at Sandy Hook School in Connecticut. Since then, the students have taken it upon themselves to improve their community, by volunteering their time across the Ohio Valley.

"We've been doing this since the shooting and for us it's a great way to remember the lives that were taken, plus its nice to help people," said Caitlyn Taylor.   

The idea to help started in Mark Fetty's homeroom, when a simple idea evolved into something much more. Fetty told WTRF.com "Its truly incredible what this has turned into. Its really a credit to these students for sticking to it.'

In addition to helping at the Wheeling Soup Kitchen, the students have donated their time once a month at several non-profit organizations across the Ohio Valley and there's no plan to stop anytime soon.
