Day 351, Thursday, December 17
Stan and I have been collecting the cans for the food drive. We weigh the non-parishable food the students bring to school. Our local fire department picks it up...adds the parishables like turkey, milk and eggs and delivers baskets to families who would other wise would not have a very Merry Christmas. The class that brings in the most pounds...get a pizza party. Sadly, this year we collected about 900 pounds less than last year and well, our families are having a harder time making ends meet.
