North Elementary School Stars gearing up for food drive | Schools
Next week students at North Elementary School in Poseyville will be collecting food items for those in need.
Student Council member Meredith Stephens says classes are being asked to bring in things like canned vegetables and fruits, mashed potatoes, canned soup and cereal.
"And we take those and give them to families in our community who would appreciate them for Thanksgiving," Meredith explained. "It's just a really nice thing for our school to do."
She says there is also an element of competition. Four winners will be treated to a cookie party.
The drive kicks off Monday and runs through Thursday, the 15th.
