Austintown Fitch students raised money for Second Harvest Food Bank and the Salvation Army through a pepperoni roll sale.

Tina Kinnick’s Principals of Marketing class presented the charities with checks in their classroom on Dec. 18. Both charities received $300 each.

Kinnick wanted to bring a lesson to life, which resulted in the charitable act. The students had been learning about the product life cycle in the class. This project reinforced what they learned as well as helped these charities.

The students in the class chose the two charities to receive the funds they raised. Kinnick said that the students knew about the Salvation Army through their Red Kettle campaign, and knew about the Second Harvest Food Bank from commercials.

Several students in the class sold near or more than 100 pepperoni rolls. Those who sold the most rolls, Destiny Miller and Chris Malloy, presented the check to Becky Miller of the Second Harvest Food Bank and Paul Moore of the Salvation Army. Trey Giannini would have also presented the check because he sold more than 100 pepperoni rolls, but he was absent that day.

Miller and Malloy said that it was easy to sell the products because the money went toward charity. They also said that people seem to be more generous around the holidays. Both of them felt good about giving back through the project.

Many of the students in class became interested with the charities. Some went to stores to ring bells as a part of the Red Kettle campaign.
