Des Plaines students form human chain for charity

November 19, 2010 (DES PLAINES, Ill.)

Maine West High School organized the same effort last year during the holiday season. Food was packaged by the student council, and hundreds of members of the student body passed the food for a couple of miles to the Self-Help Closet and Pantry, an independent organization helping needy people.

The school's principal said last year more than 500 students participated.
