JROTC volunteers at Harvest Hope

COLUMBIA – Over the course of three days, Blythewood High School’s JROTC Alpha, Bravo and Charlie companies worked to assist Harvest Hope in packing and loading food for families in need.

Cadets were assigned different tasks at the Harvest Hope facility, two of which were packaging food into boxes and loading the boxes onto vehicles for transport.

Bravo company’s Cadet Bryce Crews, who helped load completed boxes onto the vehicles, said seeing what the company accomplished brightened his day.

According to Alpha cadet Loder Mull, the experience was valuable because not only were the cadets helping families in need, but they were also strengthening their relationships among their fellow cadets.

“I really loved being a part of it, even for a moment,” cadet Jayveon James from Charlie company said. James described the experience as eye opening and moving.

Each cadet was able to take away something different from the experience. Whether it was about teamwork and personal bonds, or being of service to those in need, every cadet walked away with a newfound knowledge.
