Alpine Service Learning: Feeding America Food Truck
|Submitted on Tue, 11/08/2011 - 3:20pm.|
Dear Alpine Families,
Every year as part of our service learning efforts at Alpine Elementary, we have collected non-perishable food items from families to create Thanksgiving baskets. Although this has been a great experience for our students, we going to try something a little different this year in hopes to meet more needs in our community. This year, Alpine Elementary is sponsoring the non-profit group, Feeding America, to come to our school to hand out food to needy families in our community. This is a great opportunity for our students to work together towards the common good to provide a need in our community.
Their website tells us:
To sponsor this program we must raise approximately $250 as a school. Here at Alpine Elementary, we have planned some special days to reach this goal:
Nov. 8th & 15th: Popcorn Days -- $0.50 per bag
We will also continue to collect pennies and pop cans:
Nov. 4 through Nov. 18: We will be collecting pop cans and pennies!
