6th Annual School Wide Food Drive for the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen
A Wonderful Community Event
The Parent Association Community Service Committee organized the 6th Annual School Wide Food Drive for the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK). TASK feeds those who are hungry in the Trenton area, and offers programs to encourage self-sufficiency and improve the quality of life of its patrons.
The Primary children were quite busy the last couple weeks decorating brown paper bags for the event and the After School Elementary/MS students designed beautiful and thoughtful cards to place inside the bagged meals so that whomever opened it would get a smile. On the day of the event, Lower Elementary students sorted all the food items into categories and the Upper Elementary students assembled the bagged meals. Middle School students carried over 350 bagged meals to the school van for delivery to TASK.
Thank you to the parents for your generous donations, to Tracey Baskin and Maria Wimmers for organizing this event, to the parent volunteers and the entire school community for participating and making it such a success!
