Winston-Salem high school students prepare pies to help Habitat for Humanity

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Every November, instructor Sherry Billings and her culinary art students at John F. Kennedy High School mix, roll, cut and cook a thousand pies from scratch for Thanksgiving.

They are making pies to help raise money to help build a house for Habitat for Humanity. The students' $10,000 goal would be used to help build the $40,000 house.

The students work during class and volunteer their time after school. They're on a two and a half week schedule to churn the pies out, but they're excited about the work they are doing.

"I think that's a great idea we have the opportunity to help people less fortunate than us and it also helps get the word out about our school," said student G'Taya Johnston.
