First grade students at Blessed Sacrament School in Syracuse baked up 120 pumpkin pies Nov. 23, all of which were donated to the Rescue Mission for its Thanksgiving dinner.

This is the 18th year the school has undertaken the service project. School staff donated cans of pumpkin, eggs and pie shells.

The project is not only a math lesson on measurement, but a lesson on helping others, according to Principal Andrea Polcaro. “It is our special tradition of gratitude,” she added.

Take a look at the talented bakers in action below!
