Washington Drive Primary School students and student athletes recently held their third annual Soup-er Bowl Food Drive and collected a total of 331 cans to be donated to Harborfields Alliance For Community Outreach (HACO) and the school’s food pantry.
Students donated cans towards their favorite team in this year’s Super Bowl. The Atlanta Falcons won the “Soup-er Bowl” with 194 cans, while the New England Patriots followed with 137 cans. This year the school collected more cans than in the past two years. The fundraiser was run by the Acts of Kindness committee, an organization comprised of teachers who hold fundraisers throughout the school year. Committee co-chairs Alyson Elish and Jennifer Pennisi, as well as staff volunteers Michelle Kasin, Maria Semertzides and Millie Rivera worked together to make the drive a success.
“The children have a sense of accomplishment knowing that they have helped others in their community” said Pennisi. “It’s an exciting few weeks at Washington Drive.”
