Olatunji Adewole, a Cedar Hill Prep student, talks about the “Give N Get” program he started at the school.

A group of Cedar Hill Preparatory School students who raised money for the Franklin Township Food Bank were honored for their work at the Sept. 8 Township Council meeting.

The students raised the money – $275 – during a dance at the school last June. The dance was part of the students’ “Give n Get” community service program.

A ceremonial check for the donation was presented to food bank executive director Frank Hasner.

“These guys are great examples of people helping out the community,” Hasner said. “This is what I like to see.”

The group was led by Olatunji Adewole, who said he came up with the idea while he was participating in a community service program in Plainfield.

“You give a little hope, you get a little joy,” he said. “It’s all about doing nice things.”

In addition to Adewole, students participating in the project were Simone Thompson, Ganesh Archrya, Sherya Krishnan, Mikhith Nookala, Ashna Kelkar and Matthew Johnson.
