The eighth grade honor society students and the advisors Autumn Barry-Kyle and John Wharton held a food drive to help with Mt. Lion Backpack Program. 48 members collected food this past week.

Barry-Kyle said, “All the food donated to the program provides three meals a day including a snack for the weekend to participating students in the elementary schools.”

The food drive was held  March 21-25. The donations were stored in room C272. Some of the most needed items were Knorr Rice or pasta side dishes, packs of juice or yoo-hoo, granola bars and pudding cups.

Barry-Kyle said, “She hopes that the honor society students will have a feeling of accomplishment and citizenship knowing that they are helping our community.”
