Elementary School Food Drive

During the month of December the Windber Elementary School sponsored a food drive to benefit W.A.C.K and the Windber Food Pantry. The outcome was very amazing! In just 2 1/2 weeks the students gathered more than 2500 food items. The teachers supported our efforts and the students really took the food drive to heart. Particularly one second grade student who gathered over 200 items herself. The students competed in food wars and the homeroom in each grade level gathering the most food won a breakfast. Candy canes were provided to th...e rest of the school as a way to say thank you for participating.  I (Tammy Singer) would like to take the time to thank Giant Eagle for making a small donation of doughnuts to help with the breakfast and Singer Carpet Installation for providing breakfast and the candy canes. This is a great cause and your help was greatly appreciated. This was an exciting way to teach children the importance of community involvement. I am looking forward to organizing this food drive in future years at the Elementary School.
