Twenty-one students embarked on the annual 8-day Chicago Service Trip last Saturday, June 14. 
 
Accompanied by teachers Gregg Ponitch and Tracey Goodrich, the group was busy serving the under-served of the Chicagoland area. They participated in many service projects helping a variety of organizations.

The St. Andrew’s students served over 750 meals at seven different kitchens to the homeless and food-insecure, socialized and worked closely with children from low-income families, and worked side-by-side with adults with moderate to severe developmental disabilities.  They labeled and boxed over 14,000 cans for the Chicago Food Depository and sorted and categorized over 1100 pairs of gently used and new shoes at Share Your Soles to donate to people in third world countries. 

Marcus Adkison, Class of 2015, summed it up by saying,  “The trip was a humbling experience.”
