‘Tis the season for food drives.This year the interact club is having a competition between all first hour classes at Coldwater high School.
The Interact club would like to collect 10,000 items, which will be donated to the Branch County Food Pantry.
Mr.Petzko the head of the Interact club said that they have been doing the food drive for 15 years.
“It has always been successful we normally receive about two thousand pounds of food each year”
Petzko said that he asked for canned food and not money because “ When you ask for food it sounds more real and more people are willing to do it, but when you ask for money the people aren’t sure where its going to, and also the people who receive the money they might not buy food with it.
Classes that bring in at least 75 pounds of food will receive donuts from Dutch Uncles, and classes that bring 300 pounds will get pizza for lunch.
Students can bring in cans, jars, or boxed goods,( no perishables such as potatoes, onions, etc.)
The goal of this is to give the food pantry food so they could give them to those families who are in need, especially during the holiday thats coming up.
The food drive will end on November 18 member from Interact will be going into the seventh hour period to collect the food donated . After collecting all the food from the teachers they will get weighed and be sent out to the Branch County Food Pantry.
Don’t be greedy help the needy if you are a student at CHS you can bring in canned food to your first hour class.
This something great for those families who are in need, especially that Christmas is coming up this will allow them to add something to there table.
There are people who are in need and making a difference, for somebody who is in need is something really great, especially on a holiday like this (Christmas),and remember a difference is real when giving someone a meal.
