FOOD DRIVE FOR THE OKLAHOMA FOOD BANK

October 19 the Wetumka Elementary School will begin the food drive for the Oklahoma Food Bank. This is the program that sponsors the Backpack Club which sends food home with students that do not get enough to eat or may likely not eat over the weekend. We send approximately 20 backpacks home every Friday. This very reason is why it is vitally important that we receive food donations. To make this food drive highly successful, the classroom that receives the most food donations will win a Pizza Party!!! The food drive will run through October 29th.
