Buckingham's Annual Gift Giving/Food Drive Project - 2012
We would like to thank Nurse Randi Semanoff & all of the "Mighty Knights" who helped make our annual Giving Project/Food Drive Project a HUGE success. Also, thank you to Buckingham Students, Gage & Aiden, and the Student Council for the organization and planning of the Friday morning pretzel sales! The students raised over $600 that was donated and contributed to the overall Food Drive!
