Press Release – Sharing is Caring Food Drive
The Center Elementary School held their annual “sharing is caring” food drive during the week of February 9th to benefit the Chelmsford Food Pantry. We surpassed our goal of 500 canned and non-perishable food items by collecting 615 items in what was a shortened week due to the snow storm. In addition, 3 of our students (Skyla Robson, Kierah Bongiorno and Anthony Bongiorno) donated a $100 check to the food pantry. They were supported by a former Center student, LJ Robson who is now at the McCarthy Middle School. The money was collected last summer by the students conducting lemonade stands in their neighborhood. The food drive supports our PRIDE programming with the important themes of empathy and helping others. Great Job by all Center Students!
