Upon hearing that the community pantry was in need of meat/protein, the West Elementary Staff stepped up to reach out and help the community fulfill an important need. A total of 144 meat items were contributed by the staff. The food collected in this Staff Food Drive together with that collected in the Student Food Drive done in November represents a total of 703 food items. West plans to make the Staff Meat Food Drive a tradition at West Elementary every December.
South Elementary classrooms adopted grandparents at Windsor Place. Students put together gift bags for each of the Windsor Place patients. This reinforces the spirit of giving and sharing.
Junior High had an angel tree. Each anonymous "angel" was adopted by a staff member who fulfilled the wish list.
High School performed the Miracle on Tiger Drive. They conducted a drive to collect funds, and with those funds they purchased Christmas items for those in need.
We appreciate all who participated in the giving. It is a great feeling to be able to help others.
