News from Kathy Kaiser

 Powerpack Collection Drive

Did you know?

1 in 5 Minnesota families with children experience hunger and food shortages.

1/3 of individuals served by the Centennial Food Shelf are kids.

When kids are hungry, it is hard for them to learn.

When:  Weeks of February 24-28 AND March 2-6

The Student Leadership Council (SLC) will be collecting food for the Powerpack Program at the Centennial Food Shelf.  The Powerpack Program provides a weekend bag of breakfast items, individual meals and snacks for school age children (K-12) in all of Centennial schools.  

How:  Bring in single-serve, individually labeled items (flyer listing acceptable items will be sent home in Friday Folders this week)

The grade level with the most donations will receive a reward chosen by their teacher and classmates!
