CLARKSDALE – Members of Coahoma Community College’s SkillsUSA visited The Care Station in Clarksdale Monday morning where they assisted the organization in its mission to feed those in need.

Faculty and students of CCC’s Division of Career and Technical Education are members of the organization, which is a partnership of high school and college students, teachers, business and industry working together to ensure that America has a skilled workforce.

Seven members of the organization visited The Care Station which has provided hot lunches and devotion to more than 60 individuals each day and delivering another 175 “meals on wheels” per day to the local community since 1987.

Care Station President Charlie Estess said he’s always grateful for the help and assistance from CCC.

“We’ve had a great partnership with the college. Over the past several years, this group (SkillUSA) has been coming,” he said. “Today they’ve been bagging food for our delivery on Friday, processing carrots, washing dishes and all kinds of stuff so it’s really a big help for us.”

Earnest Martin, a Carpentry major from Clarksdale, said he feels good to know that by volunteering a couple of hours from his day because he’s helping to make sure someone has a warm meal.

“It make s me feel great to be able to carry out our mission to help others in life. You never know, one day you may need a helping hand so it’s good to give to others.”
