Columbus Jewish Day School partnered with Mid-Ohio Foodbank in honor of Community Day, celebrated Nov. 24.

Throughout November, students collected food, snacks, beverages and personal-care items.

The students worked with Community Day guests to assemble "kid packs" of food, providing enough to feed a family of four.

They also decorated bags for the collected items and held a rally to welcome the Mid-Ohio Foodbank truck.

"Tzedakah," or philanthropy, is one of the school's foundations.
