A Wonderful Lesson in Giving

This is how the food drive at the children's school added up. They did rather well once again. They sent notes home to have your child bring in a can of food a day for two weeks. Which is a good way to get food brought in. This how it all came out in the end. Really proud of everyone involved.

Our school as a whole donated 3180 cans to F.I.S.H.
Our school came in 4th out of 12 schools.

Mrs Olsen's 3rd grade class donated the most cans - 414

Student that donated the most was Brennan Plunkett - 230 cans.

Here is a message from F.I.S.H.

" Thanks to all the principals , teachers , students , parents , relatives and neighbors who worked hard on this drive. The Homeless and Hungry will enjoy the food you collected."

Our family donated some extra things in memory of our children we lost. We donated diapers , baby food and wipes. Things that they don't normally get but I know there are those little ones out there that need things to.

Once again a very good job from everyone.

Glad you all had a nice Thanksgiving & I'm thrilled about the food drive - I know so many people can use the help now.I understand about you sending baby things - those are probably needed so much! xoxo

that was neat, Caroline, that you included items that others usually don't think about donating! WTG for all involved in a great campaign!
