A great big thank you for all those who helped make our Kindergarten and 1st grade food drive a huge success. We began this food drive in early November when we learned about the Habit- Win-Win. We learned about the sacrifices of our American soldiers, and wanted to pay that sacrifice forward by helping families in need. We collected 582 canned foods and over 100 dry food boxes.
