ROCHESTER, Minn-

Mayo High School students showed a generous spirit by going door-to-door to collect non-perishable food items for their S.O.S. room.

S.O.S. stands for “Support Our Spartans,” and the room offers families and students basic living supplies ranging from coats to food and toiletries.

“You don’t have to fill out a form, you don’t have to ask any questions,” Kate Williamson, one of the students, said. “You can just walk in. It’s segmented into the different kind of things they have there. If you are in need of a coat or some toothpaste or something, no one’s gonna stop you. You can just take it if you need it.”

The students who participated are part of the Mayo High School Honor Society. The canned food drive is just one of many ways the Honor Society gives back to the community.

“Well, it’s really wonderful to know that there are efforts like these within our communities specifically within our school for people who feel like they don’t have access to these things,” Williamson said.
