We are thrilled to announce that 5th grade is working with the Legacy of Giving project this November to donate both non-perishable foods and gently used or new coats to the Central Texas Food Bank and Coats for Kids. Why coats? When families have to choose between heat and food, they buy food.
5th grade wants to encourage every family to bring:
Non-Perishable Foods: Healthy. Sturdy packaging. Not expired. These items have been requested, if possible: peanut butter, canned chicken or tuna, low sodium vegetables, fruit packed in their own juices, dry pinto beans, brown rice, non-fat dry milk powder, and 100% whole grain cereals.
Coats: Warm, thick coats. NO sweaters, hoodies, or thin fleece because they will not be warm enough. Each donation may be a kid’s only coat AND blanket, so the coats need need to be warm. Sizes up to adult XXL are needed.
Donation Due Date: November 28th
