Students from Goshen’s Merit Learning Center ventured across town Tuesday, Feb. 12, to Kroger to assist senior citizens as they load their groceries following shopping. Tuesdays mark senior citizen’s day at Kroger and students worked in two shifts to help shoppers with heavy carts to their cars and unload the carts.

Kristen Watt, Merit’s principal, said that Merit usually does several random acts of kindness the week of Valentine’s Day. This week, those acts include helping out at The Window in downtown Goshen, volunteering at Soup of Success and delivering carnations to Greencroft residents.

Merit Learning Center is an alternative school in Goshen that works with Goshen, Concord, Fairfield, Jimtown and Northridge high schools.

 FILE - In this Oct. 6, 2012, file photo, women walk by a statue of Joseph and Emma Smith outside the church office building during the 182nd Semiannual General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City. Mormon church founder Joseph Smith had an underage bride and was married to other men’s wives during the early days of the faith when polygamy was practiced, a new church essay reveals. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says most of Smith’s wives were between 20 and 40 years old but that one was just 14. While part of the church's early days, polygamy has been banned in the faith since 1890.  (AP Photo/The Salt Lake Tribune, Scott Sommerdorf, File)
