"Kids Helping Kids" Garden Springs 'Hunger Heroes' Food Drive:

Let's be HUNGER HEROES at Garden Springs by getting started wuth our annual Thanksgiving food drive!  Beginning Monday, October 11th - Friday, October 29th, please bring in cans of food or boxed food to donate to help with our Thanksgiving food drive ("Kids Helping Kids") here at Garden Springs.  All food donations go to God's Pantry!
How our "Kids Helping Kids" food drive will work:
Each homeroom will have a box inside their classroom designated for the food donations.  The donated food in the box will be counted each Friday morning, and emptied into God's Pantry Blue Bins which will be located in the cross hallway.  After the donated food is counted, the homeroom with the most donated food will be awarded the 'Hunger Hero' on Friday afternoon.  The winning homeroom will keep the trophy for 1 week, and will have the privilege of being known as 'Hunger Heroes'!  At the end of the food drive, all classrooms that won will get an extra special treat from Mrs. Runyon in the FRC. 
**Please bring in any of the following food items any day during the drive (October 11th through October 29th) and place them in our classroom box (any not put in our box and directly in the blue bins will not be counted for our classroom total):
Instant Mashed Potatoes            Dressing Mix                           Gravy Mix
Dessert                                                Corn Muffin Mix                    Canned Yams
Cranberry Sauce                             Canned Fruit                          Macaroni and Cheese
Canned Vegetables
**A SPECIAL NOTE: This is an absolutely AMAZING cause and my very most favorite contest we can ever participate in so I take it very seriously as it is extremely touching.  Therefore, if we win this contest, I have promised the class a pizza party in addition to whatever prize we win from FRC!!!  So let's do some good and put smiles on the faces of as many families as we can this holiday season!**
