The sixth grade spent the afternoon sorting and packing the food collected by the school community in this year’s Thanksgiving Food Drive. After loading everything into a truck, we headed to Wayside Food Programs to unload and weigh everything. Our hope was that the school had collected more than last years 1,907 pounds—or even the previous year’s 2,289 pounds. Thanks to the whole community’s effort, we knocked it out of the park and collected an impressive 2,815 pounds of food. Wayside will begin distributing that food this week to help families in need.
Way to go, Waynflete! Thank you for your generosity!
