Kids-4-Kids Food Drive 2.0, October 21-28

Due to Covid protocols, Kids-4-Kids, our school-wide service learning project, will be a week-long food drive this year, from Oct. 21-28. Unfortunately, there will be no clothing drive. For our “Food Drive 2.0” we are asking every student to bring in two non-perishable items. The food drive donations can be dropped off by the kids in LS classrooms and MS/US advisory rooms. Please see the flyer for more information and for suggested items. The donations will be used to put together a week’s worth of meals for 30 families in need.

Thank you, in advance, for your help in making this a success! For more information on how Kids-4-Kids would normally function, please visit the Community Service page on the PACA website.
