It’s Thank you Thursday. Today’s shout out of Mission love goes to the K-8 students and staff at the Peninsula School in Prospect Harbor, and to the K-8 students at the Mountain View School in Sullivan. Both groups were successful in helping our friends and neighbors who use the Mission’s Family Food Center in Cherryfield.
Peninsula School’s K-8 students and staff collected 302 boxes of cereal to donate to area food pantries. On the school’s Facebook page you can see an impressive video of the 302 cereal boxes set up like dominoes from one end of the school to the other. And 1st Grade teacher Katie Parker delivered 100 boxes to the Mission’s Food Pantry.
K-8 students at Mountain View School collected 5,792 packages of Ramen Noodles through their food drive, distributing the food to area pantries. Instructional Coach Megan Worcester delivered over 600 Ramen Noodle packages to the Mission. You can see what 5,792 packages look like on the school’s Facebook page.
Mission Food Programs Coordinator Stephanie Moores said, “We are so excited to see the enthusiasm of the staff and students helping area food pantries! We are so grateful for the generous and significant donations from both Peninsula and Mountain View. Their donations will help us feed many people.”
This is what community looks like.
