Mrs. Carlson and her 5th grade class sponsored the annual Salvation Army Can Food Drive this year.
It is our intention to remind students that feeding people at The Salvation Army doesn’t just happen during the holidays: It’s an everyday occurrence. This time of year is challenging for The Salvation Army because the need seems so much greater, and they run out of the basic foods. Food donated during the food drive will help support food pantries beyond the holiday season.
The Elementary School students and staff collected a little over 1,200 non-perishable goods. It just goes to show that Grant Park Elementary School, Families and Staff are giving back to our community one household at a time.
Thank you for your generosity during this holiday season.
Tracy Planeta, Principal
