Home / JVE Slideshow / Evergreen Packaging Canned Food Drive a Huge Success


Between Thanksgiving and early this week, our students have been bringing canned food and other non perishable food items to donate to Manna food bank through the White Christmas canned food drive sponsored by Evergreen Packaging. We had three teams: Kindergarten and 5th grade were a team, 1st and 4th grade were a team, and 2nd and 3rd grade were a team. As of Tuesday, 12/18, we had collected a total of 1,270 food items. Kindergarten and 5th grade collected the most with 475, 1st and 4th were right behind them with 447, and 2nd and 3rd grade did a great job by donating 348 food items. The winning team had a dance party in the gym Tuesday afternoon and then the whole school had a “one song dance party” when we played a song over the intercom and everyone danced. We appreciate our students, families, and community members for their great generosity in this endeavor.
