The annual canned food drive sponsored by the DCS Student Council is underway. The elementary and high school student will be collecting canned goods or dry food for donation to the Leland Food Pantry until November 15. The food pantry is in desperate need of donations.
The following items are of the greatest need: Tang, grits, pork and beans, canned spaghetti, macaroni and cheese, dried beans, rice, canned milk, sugar, cake mix, corn meal, flour, cooking oil, syrup, peanut butter, jelly, jello, crackers, spaghetti sauce, peas, mixed vegetables, canned beans, canned corn, canned sweet potatoes, boxed creamed potatoes, canned soup and canned fruit. PLEASE DO NOT SEND RAMEN NOODLES!
For every 5 items that are donated, the class will receive a feather to be placed on the turkey in the high school and elementary hallways. The grade in elementary and the grade in high school that has the most feathers will be rewarded with a day out of school.
Please encourage your children to participate in this Thanksgiving project!
