We’ve been reporting on local schools/classrooms taking Arbor Heights Elementary teacher Marcia Ingerslev and her students up on the challenge to collect at least 100 nonperishable food items, to commemorate the 100th day of school. For Seattle Public Schools, that’s February 20th; for some independent schools, it’s earlier, like Holy Rosary School, whose Lynne Crockett mentioned their kindergarteners’ food drive in a WSB comment yesterday; we subsequently requested a photo, and here it is!
We loved the idea of collecting 100 cans of food for the food bank. Between Mrs. Crockett and Mrs. Clarke’s classes, we collected over 200 cans of food for the White Center Food Bank. Attached is a photo of Reese, in the back of her family SUV among the bags of canned goods going to be delivered to the food bank. Again, thanks to the other schools who gave us this great idea!
The other schools participating have chosen to collect for the West Seattle Food Bank; as we frequently note, WC Food Bank serves part of West Seattle as well. Congratulations to everybody who’s joined in, and we’ll be happy to publish other progress reports/results too.
