Area students are giving back to their community through a service project.

The Augusta Area School District participated in the 2nd Annual Hugs for Humanity. School leaders said 600 students from Pre-K to 12th grade took part in a variety of events including, making birthday boxes for an area food pantry, cleaning, raking, and picking up trash at local businesses.

They said the event is busy, but fun day for everyone.

“Kids are doing it throughout the day, some kids participated in the morning and some this afternoon,” said Augusta Elementary School Principal Nicole Steinmetz. “We got buses coming and going to help transport us downtown into the highways to help clean-up.”

School leaders said the service project continues to grow each year.
