Effort Afforded Food Bank Over 1,000 lbs. of Food
Third grade students Acceleration and Enrichment students at Beall Elementary School recently organized a food drive for the Western Maryland Food Bank during the week of December 14, 2009. The total amount of food collected from students was 1,065 pounds.
Additionally, students who donated food at the drive had the opportunity to participate in the theme for the day. For example, if a student brought in a breakfast food item for the drive, they were then able to participate in “Pajama Day.”
These AEP students were also able to tour the facilities of the food bank and learned about operational procedures and the importance of community involvement.
