WHITE CHRISTMAS CANNED FOOD DRIVE CONTEST
It is time once again for Jonathan Valley Elementary School to partner with Evergreen Industry for their Annual White Christmas Canned Food Drive. We will begin collecting non-perishable canned food items on Monday, November 28th, and will end the food drive on Monday, December 12th. This year, we hope to collect more food than ever before by holding a contest among the grade levels. The grade levels have been organized into three teams; Kindergarten and Fifth, First and Fourth, Second and Third. There will be shopping carts in the front lobby labeled with these team names. Each morning, students will add food items to their group’s cart. At the end, the team with the most collected items will win a special treat. Parents may also drop off non-perishable food items at the front of the school, but please add a label stating a grade level so we can include them in the contest.
The food is distributed to local food banks and to needy families in Haywood County by Evergreen Industry.
The continued success of this canned food drive would not be possible without the efforts of the students, staff, parents and caring individuals of our community.
