The annual Mountain View High School food drive will start on October 24th and go all the way until November 3rd.
The food drive is meant to help families that are in need of food and could use some help this holiday season.
Student council is asking for any canned or packaged food to help families in need, but canned meats and nicer soups are especially wanted. Money donations are also encouraged, and just one dollar can feed a family of four for one day with the connections the school has to food organizations.
Students can donate by delivering their goods to bins throughout the school.
“[The food drive] helps people that don’t have food and that need it,” said Mrs. Patricia Burgi when ask what makes canned food donations so important.
Also, families that need help are very grateful when they receive it, even if it’s just small donations.
“We should all donate to the food drive because it brings us together as a community and helps us help others,” said Mrs. Mireille Stuebner.
The food drive helps bring out the best of people, and makes everyone happier.
“We just determined that we are going to do one with money,” reported Faith Weaver when asked if there would be a competition between the classes for the food drive. Money donations will be counted to see who has won at the end of the drive.
A “Can Do” attitude is extremely important when helping those in need.
