The Shaker Junior High School community worked together to help provide an excellent Thanksgiving dinner to many people, by way of the Builders Club canned yam food drive.
Builders Club, co-advised by Ms. Trina Schanz and Ms. Erin Mailloux, coordinated its annual canned yam drive to benefit the Equinox House Thanksgiving dinner with a goal of 400 cans of yams. The club surpassed its goal, collecting a total of 595 cans, which will be donated to Equinox in Albany. Because each junior high school hall contributed at least 100 cans, each hall earned a mid-morning break scheduled for December.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the drive!
