Brandon Elementary and Brandon Primary School launched the first of several food donation drives scheduled for this school year. With the help of parents, the Roots and Shoots organization, and the staff at Brandon, a food pantry was stocked with non-perishable goods today. The school’s social worker and counselor were able to help 23 families have a better Thanksgiving holiday. Food drives will continue throughout the school year with an aim to help families over holiday breaks and other times that they may be in need.
Hat tip to Janet Bernstein, school social worker at Brandon, for sharing this good news.
