Food Drive this Week

The 8th grade class is hosting a Community Service Project for The Church of the Good Shepherd Soup Kitchen.  

Collections are happening this week and your donations are appreciated helping many hungry families! We have placed boxes in the hallways outside all classrooms.

8th graders will be on hand to collect your donations during morning carpool Thursday 4/18 and Friday 4/19.

Food Items Needed

  • #10 canned vegetables (green beans, mixed vegetables, collards, carrots)
    *regular size cans will work but larger #10 are easier for us to open and serve more people.
