During the event, students took up a collection of both nonperishable food items and monetary donations, and then 100% of our donations were given to the Fayette Samaritans to help with their food bank and other assistance programs.
In order to add a little more excitement to the event this year, the school was divided into three competing teams, the white—6th grade homerooms, the gold –7th grade homerooms, and the blue—8th grade homerooms. In addition, most valuable players—those that made the greatest contributions to this drive, were named for each team and each person received free admission to a basketball home game.
Also, in keeping with the sporting theme, admission to the January 31st home basketball game was reduced to $1.00 when a canned good was also donated. In addition, the Media Center accepted canned good donations in lieu of overdue fines from January 20—February 3.
