"Girls for Excellence" Club Hosts Food Drive
The Girls For Excellence Club is sponsoring a canned food drive, as a way of giving back to the community during the holidays. All food collected will be donated to the MRH Weekend on Wheels program which provides food to MRH families in need. If parents/guardians are interested in helping their student participate, Maplewood Richmond Heights Elementary will be collecting non-perishable food items between November 16-December 10, 2015.
A raffle is being held in conjunction with the food drive. For each food item brought in, the student will get 1 raffle ticket (5 items =5 tickets etc). Raffle items include things such as a pizza lunch, board games, activities during lunch/recess, a treat for the winner’s whole class, and much more. Raffle winners will be chosen after the food drive is over on December 10.
Most needed items include:
- peanut butter
- pasta sauce
- canned chicken/tuna
