Each tutorial will be competiting to obtain the highest number of canned goods. The donations are being collected and counted each week during tutorial classes. Students can donate money during their lunch periods. The winning tutorial will recieve a doughnut party provided by the FOR club and FMP’s.
“[The Freshman] are all really dedicated to bringing things in,” said Freshman Mentor, Alec Gates (12).
All money donations and canned goods will benefit South students and their families during this holiday season. Food donations must be non-perishable items. The food will then go to local Kansas City food banks that serve the Park Hill community. Money donations will benefit an adopt-a-family program throughout the holidays. Any extra canned foods will be going to Harvesters.
“We are trying to keep [the food drive] inside the school,” said FOR Club President, Hannah Woodson (12), “we want to show that South cares”.
South’s STUCO is also sponsoring a food drive this month, however it is specific to Mac & Cheese. Each first block class is encouraged to bring in multiple boxes of Mac & Cheese. The boxes will be going to the Salvation Army and then added to holiday food baskets. Food baskets will then be distrubuted to local Kansas City families.
South’s Mac & Cheese drive began last Monday and will conclude Thursday the 17th. STUCO members collected the first round of donations last Friday, the final collection will be on the 17th.
Members will then count and tally how many Mac & Cheese boxes each class has donated. The winning first block will recieve STUCO provided breakfast party the following week.
