FOOD DRIVES

Ann K. Snyder Elementary hosted their annual food drive to collect donations for the Interfaith Food Pantry. 

"At Snyder, we believe in giving and showing gratitude in all that we do. The students spent the week donating items to the food pantry, but they are also required to give the "gift of time." We recreated the Interfaith Food Pantry in one of our classrooms so that each child volunteers 30 minutes of service. They sort food, organize everything into boxes, and check expiration labels. It is important to us here at Snyder that the children not only learn the importance of giving to others, but to recognize the feeling of gratitude when they volunteer and "work" to help others." - Lindsay Ardoin, Principal at Snyder Elementary 

Second graders at Coulson Tough Elementary donated 690 lbs of food to the Interfaith Food Pantry! Thank you to an incredible group of students for giving back to the community. 
CITIZENS IN ACTION!

Thank you to the first grade students from  David Elementary School  for raising $3,393 for the Interfaith Food Pantry through their Citizens in Action Project! Each student was given $1 to start their project and for several weeks the students found creative ways to help their money grow. Way to go David Dolphins!
