SSES Annual Food Drive 2014

written by Troy and Hughe
Our class did the food drive.  We made days to give ideas of what to bring.  Each day, we went to classrooms and collected all of the food.  We put the food in boxes and then put it on the table.  We sorted it out on the tables.  At the end of the week we started to box all of the food.  People from Evergreen Basic needs came with a truck and picked up all of the food.  We had 37 boxes of food and one box of toys for kids that need toys at Christmas.  We collected 892.8 lbs of food, that's 206.8 lbs more than last year!  Wow!  We felt grateful to do the food drive.  We loved doing it!  The food will make people feel joyful and healthy!

Thank you to all of the people that donated.

  1. This initiative is one of my favorites at SSES because together we are helping to make our community a better place for others, especially those less fortunate than us. I believe true happiness only happens to those who are generous and give to others. Thank you Mrs. Poloski and class for organizing this important event for our school. You are truly making a difference. Congratulations on exceeding last year's collection! Wow!
