Our National Junior Honor Society will be collecting food donations this week to “Spread the Love!” The items collected will be donated to the Buses n’ Backpacks program that is part of South Lake Community Ministries. The program is an effort to feed children who are afflicted by poverty and homelessness. Last year, they provided approximately 55,000 meals and are on track to do more this year.
All middle school students can donate Pop Tarts, but there’s a friendly competition between the middle school girls and boys. The girls are asked to bring in peanut butter and the boys are asked to bring in honey. Whoever collects the most bottles will win a free dessert day at lunch.
