The Third Grade Huskies held a Thanksgiving Food Drive for Children First, a local organization that is dedicated with empowering and advocating for children and adults who face poverty.
RCS has teamed up with Children First on projects throughout the year and the third grade has done the food drive for the past couple of years.
Students collected food in food boxes from November 4-18, 2014.
They dropped off all the food collection at Children First yesterday.
RCS was able to help so many families. The third grade really had lots of boxes of generously donated food and goods. There were carloads!
Jodi at Children First sent us a warm email. She said,
Thank you AGAIN for the AMAZING Thanksgiving Food Drive—the shelves of our food pantry are stocked with all of your wonderful goodies! I personally think that the donated food tastes so much better, because there is caring and compassion involved!
Your class, and all of your staff, students and parents really outdid themselves this year—it truly is amazing how full the pantry is now! Please share our gratitude to everyone.
The third grade really worked hard in reminding folks in the RCS community to contribute to the food drive, collecting food and delivering it to Children First.
