Thanks to generous contributions to the 2015 Cans of Kindness Food & Gift Card Drive, Blue Creek families experiencing financial difficulties were provided substantial amounts of food and grocery gift cards to assist them over the December break. Many of the donations were made in lieu of holiday gifts for teachers.
Students Connor Carey, James O’Donnell, Brenna Welling, Alexander Polsinello, Claire Riley, and Diana Song donated their time to sort and pack all of the donated food.
“I am grateful to be part of a community who believes in supporting one another through challenging times,” said Principal Trapini. “Stress and anxiety related to food scarcity can be overwhelming. Through the generosity of our community, we have given the gift of peace to many Blue Creek families.”
