With a record 26 Valley High Schools already in the fold, the Arizona branch of the 2010 National Student Food Drive is now close at hand with the kickoff meeting set for Tuesday, Oct. 12 at St. Mary’s Food Bank’s University of Phoenix Programs Center (3003 W. Thomas Road.)
Schools that are already signed up for the four-week cash and food drive include: Apollo, Arcadia, Basha, Cactus, Carl Hayden, Centennial, Chaparral, Crestview Academy, Dysart, Ironwood, Liberty, Marcos de Niza, Moon Valley, Peoria, Raymond Kellis, Sandra Day O’Connor, Shadow Mountain, South Mountain, South Ridge, Sunrise Mountain, Tempe, Thunderbird, Trevor Browne, Westview, Willow Canyon and the defending champions from Mountain Ridge.
If your school – or your neighborhood’s school – is on the confirmed list, mark down Oct. 12 – Nov. 12 and help your team with its goals. If not, there is still time for your high school to join! Your Student Council, National Honor Society, DECA club or other student organization is encouraged to take part in the drive to help feed the more than 1 million Arizonans currently dealing with food insecurity. One in four Arizona children will go to bed hungry tonight.
The top schools will win prizes ranging from Phoenix Coyotes and Harkins Theatre passes, to US Airways travel gift certificates to the grand prize – a 250-seat Harkins Theatre near your school for an exclusive night at the movies which can be used as a school fundraiser!
