Food Drive for Student Support Network
Concordia Prep is supporting the Student Support Network, which provides food and other items to students in need in area public schools. We will be directly supporting the “Haven,” which is a room in Loch Raven High School where students in need can go for pantry and personal items free of charge. Nearly half of the students (48%) at Loch Raven High School live in poverty and qualify to get items from the Haven. Due to COVID and school closures last year, their pantry is basically bare. 

Please help us by donating the following pantry items in the days leading up to Wednesday, September 15. Donations may be delivered to Room 212 (Ms. Weldon). 
  • Peanut butter & Jelly
  • Pasta & Sauce
  • Pancake Mix
  • Mac-n-Cheese
  • Soups
  • Canned Tuna/chicken
  • Healthy cereal

During advisory on Wednesday, September 15 the sophomore class will be packing individual snack packs for as many students as possible. Please consider giving any of the following healthy items (per request):
