Harvesting Hope: STA Students Join Forces with Grow-A-Row
Posted on 10/24/2023
In an inspiring act of community service, students from STA's Campus Ministry embarked on a heartwarming service trip to Pittstown, NJ, to join hands with the non-profit organization, Grow-A-Row. This organization tirelessly farms fresh produce, delivering it to food banks and pantries not just in New Jersey but in 17 states across the nation.

On Saturday, students put their hands to work, engaging in the labor of love as they harvested a whopping 500 pounds of tomatoes. It's not just about the sheer quantity; it's the impact these tomatoes will have. This harvest alone has the potential to help nourish over 2,000 people, underscoring the profound difference even a small group of dedicated individuals can make.

The smiles on their faces were as bright as the tomatoes they picked, as they worked in unison to bring fresh, nutritious food to those in need. This remarkable day showcased the power of unity and compassion, reminding us all of the positive change we can create when we come together.
