ACCESS PARENT NIGHT
Give a Can; Lend a Hand Food Drive
Winston Warriors are participating in the Give a Can; Lend a Hand Food Drive. Items collected will be donated to the food pantry at Journeys, a local shelter providing assistance to those in need. Students can bring in a non-perishable food item or anything listed HERE. Participating homerooms are competing to bring in the most items, and the winning homeroom will win a prize from Mr. Da Costa! Please consider donating to this very worthy cause!
