Record Breaking Rotary Canned Food Drive!
canned food and student council
Our Student council and Advisor Mrs. Alexander hit it out of the park this holiday season!! Despite Weldon being Title I school and many of our families face socio/economic challenges, our community GAVE above and beyond.!
However that did not keep our families from  going above and beyond. We brought in  nearly 3x’s the amount of past years, 2,505 items total! The office is literally overflowing with our communities generosity! Items collected were primarily canned food. Also collected were other non-perishable items such as ramen, instant potatoes, mac n cheese, beans and rice, boxed pilaf, and one family brought in a bag full of several spices and seasonings needed in cooking!
Our families truly embody what this time of year is about. Though many may not have much, they wanted to give above and beyond and bless others. Throw in a little friendly competition amongst the classrooms and it was a record breaking campaign! All donations are picked up by the Rotary Club of Clovis, the sponsor of this event.
