Compassion Matters - Pass It On! 10-26-17
Another week down - another 1000 pounds of food donated! The Preston community contends with only 3 weeks left of the food drive. At the midway point of our food drive, students have donated a total of 3345 pounds of non-perishable foods. Compassion Connection members sorted and pulled out food items that will be needed to make Thanksgiving baskets and packages by Italian Club and Spanish Honor Society. The rest was packed up and made ready for a pantry pickup.
Mercy Center came with a pickup truck and assembly lines moved 2000 pounds of food from the stage to the faculty parking lot. If our goal is reached, we will collect 9000lbs and get a day off from school! With the clock ticking and the goal awaiting, incentive is high and the tone in the school is a generous one!
