Salvation Army Drive

It is that time of year where we collect shoes for those in need through the annual Let Someone Fill Your Shoes campaign. Peabody has participated in this worthy event for many years and we not only collect shoes for the homeless, we are also a drop off location. The Let Someone Fill Your Shoes campaign is cosponsored by local area podiatrists and the Salvation Army. You may deposit new or lightly used, clean shoes in one of the large boxes located by the front doors of the school buildings during drop off or pick up times. Please feel free to take advantage of this opportunity to clean out the clutter of shoes no longer used by your family, while helping our students experience the reward of helping others. Shoes will be collected through Friday, January 31, 2020. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.

Support the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank

Did you know that in our community there are 131,800 people who don’t know where or when their next meal will be, and that 1 in 8 children in our area suffer from hunger? Ms. Wynn’s Middle School Hunger Elective (Ronak, Ellena, Lila, Miles, Sahalia, Kes) is taking the extra step to create a food drive and fundraiser for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, BRAFB, serves an average of 106,000 people every month. From January 6 - 24, you will have the chance to help them and community by donating baby products such as diapers and baby food, and money. Every $1 you donate provides 4 whole meals for hungry people. Canned food donations and non-perishable food items are also greatly appreciated. Here is a list of the Food Bank’s “Most Needed Items”. Thank you!
