Winter Canned Food Drive

The bins are slowly filling up. Great job to the students who have already brought in cans! There's still time to donate to our canned food drive! The deadline has been extended to January 14th! We will be collecting canned food to donate to Feed More in Richmond. Students can bring in canned foods to help us reach our goal of "filling the bin"!

We still have a few boxes of fruit left over. If you are interested, please contact the school ASAP, before the fruit goes bad.
