Together We CAN Make A Difference!!
The Washington Middle School Builder’s Club & Washington Kiwanis AM’ers, together with the Kiwanis AM’ers Service Club and WMS PIE (Parents Involved in Education), are sponsoring a holiday food drive and you CAN help! Beginning Monday, November 11, and running through Thursday, December 12, all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students are asked to bring at least one non-perishable food item to WMS and drop that item in his or her “class box” which will be located in the hallways of WMS. With the assistance of PIE parents and the Service Club members, these items will be counted, and an overall “class” winner announced on Monday, December 23.
As part of the Service Club’s Secret Santa Project, all food items will be distributed to needy families in the Washington Community in time for the Christmas holiday.
We know that all of us CAN make a difference in this service project, and we CAN spread a little holiday cheer to those in need in our own community.
Suggested items for donation include: cranberry sauce, canned vegetables, canned fruits, applesauce, canned soups, flour, sugar, packaged cookies, crackers, pudding, jello, fruit cocktail, stuffing mix, cereals, rice, oatmeal, canned pie filling, and any other non-perishable items you may wish to donate.
If you have any questions, you CAN contact Rachel Meyer/Connie Hoffman-Svenby, Student Council Advisors or Curt Mayer, WMS Principal/Builder’s Club Advisor, at 653-5414.
