Canned Food Drive

6th grade homeroom kiddos.  Don’t forget about Durham’s canned food drive going on now through November 14th. Please consider sending in nonperishable items to help make a family in need have a brighter holiday celebration.  Not only will your donation help someone else, but if our homeroom donates the most canned goods we get a donut party!  Who does not love a donut??

Donations of gift cards enter you in a raffle to through a pie inn the face of one of the brave teachers who have volunteered for the fun!

Thank you for being kind, generous, and thoughtful.   🙂
