Riverview Food Drive is Here!Published by angela.killian on Tue, 11/08/2016 - 11:48
Riverview 4-H and Riverview Student Council are pleased to announce the seventh annual Food Drive and Giving Tree service project. This service project will be Nov. 9th –Dec. 20th, our goal is to BEAT last year’s total of 3,000 can of food! The food will be donated to families in our school, Nebo Pantry, and the Utah Food Coalition.
The Nebo Pantry is for homeless and transient students in our district. The District currently has over 1,700 students in this situation. The Nebo Pantry is in extreme need of new packaged socks and underwear (in all sizes youth to adult). They also need new gloves, hats, and new or gently used coats.
There will be a contest between classes. Each class has a goal of collecting 125 cans OR point per class. If any student donates socks, underwear, gloves or coats they will get 5 bonus points for the food drive. One can of food will be worth 1 point, teachers will keep track of class points. The class per grade level that collects the most cans/bonus points will receive a pizza party.
This is a great opportunity to teach our students about service and being grateful for the things we have. All cans should be brought to your student’s classroom to be counted and recorded.
PLEASE make sure the cans are not EXPIRED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!! LET’S ALL WORK TOGETHER FOR A GREAT CAUSE!!
