Can Food Drive

Over the past 10 years, our students have collected over 200,000 food items to be donated to the First United Methodist Church community food bank and we have just finished another successful drive! Our goal this year was 5,000 and we brought in 3,000 food items. Way to go Blue Devils! The winning class was Ms. Tant's homeroom with a total of 927 food items. Ms. Whitley's homeroom came in second place with 638 food items. On Friday, Ms. Tant's class delivered food items to First United Methodist Church followed by lunch at Wendy's. They will also receive a pizza party in January! Congrats to Ms. Tant's class!

The FUMC shared with students the impact their donations make on the community. They just celebrated giving out their 10,000th bag of food. One thing we can do to take our giving ONE step further is to cut out the boxtop coupons on boxes and cans. Please turn those in to the counseling department and we will make sure the church receives those. These coupons will be given to other less fortunate communities in need of support.
