Canned Food Drive: January 3rd-January 6th

The Student Council will be hosting a canned food drive the week of January 3rd-January 6th. The Food Drive will benefit The Family Place Emergency Shelter. The shelter's food pantry is devastatingly low after the holiday season, so it is our goal to fill it back up with donations from UP!

All canned goods are welcome!
The class with the most cans will receive a special prize treat!
