Trumbull County Educational Service Center staff members and students collected 60 bags of nonperishable groceries for Niles Community Services.
The effort was part of a Thanksgiving community service project. Staff and students in 43 preschool, multiple disabilities and emotionally disturbed classrooms located throughout Trumbull County collected items through the month. The food items will be distributed to families in need in the Niles area.
