School #1 "Souper Cereal Bowl!"
The Jr. Municipal Alliance and Student Council are collaborating at School #1 to collect soup cans and cereal boxes for three local food pantries. Community food drives like ours help children and their families receive emergency food assistance when they need it.
Our "Souper Cereal Bowl" food drive will run the week before and after the Super Bowl - from Jan. 28th - Feb. 8th. Please donate what you can. Donations will be collected during the students' 1st period class.
We greatly appreciate your support!
