Check your pantries! Add an extra item or two to your grocery cart! Plum Grove will be having a food drive this week! All items collected will be donated to the Palatine Township Food Pantry (just in time for Thanksgiving week!). Boxes will be set up by the front office, MPR, library, and lower level. for students to drop their donations right when they get to school. Donations will be collected Monday-Friday (11/14-11/18). As a way to get students excited about this, the student council has made it a competition between 7th and 8th grade. The grade with the most items donated will have the chance to win an awesome prize! The student council has also set a goal to collect 500 items throughout the week.
