Throughout the month of November, students and staff of Archer Street and Leo F. Giblyn schools in the Freeport School District brought in donations of canned and packaged foods, paper goods, plastic ware and other nonperishable items that were then donated to Our Holy Redeemer Parish Outreach of Freeport.
Archer school hosted its holiday “Giving Tree,” where each person who donated had their name written on a “Giving Tree” bulletin board that was on display outside the principal’s office. At Giblyn, the presidents and vice presidents of the fourth-grade classes made announcements every afternoon about which classes brought in the most donations each day.
Archer donated 20 cartons of food and Giblyn raised a total of 2,466 of food items to help provide meals for the needy and the homeless.
