For Northfield Food Pantry Canned Food Drives
1. Boxes marked with grade levels will be located at a central place
in your school building.
2. Students deposit cans in their grade level box by 10:30 am each
3. Cans will be counted by parent volunteers each day.
4. The totals will be in the form of a bar graph at www.glenview34.org.
Thank you so much for participating in our Community Canned Food
Drive. This food drive is organized by a group of parents from District
34, Our Lady of Perpetual Help and
District 30. The purpose of our group is to share ideas about how
we can best support our children and their schools and, when appropriate,
and coordinate joint projects such as this one.
Drive is our inaugural activity. The plan is to run a school-community
food drive October 17- 21. Schools will be given boxes for each
grade level placed in a central location for students to drop off
the food. We have arranged for parent volunteers to come in daily
count up the cans for each grade level. The cans will be removed
every day. A running bar graph will be available during the week,
listing the totals BY GRADE LEVEL. Our intent is to get children
thinking community-wide rather than by individual school. For example,
Grade total would include all cans donated from third graders at
Hoffman, Pleasant Ridge, Glen Grove, Our Lady of Perpetual Help,
Westcott and Willowbrook, combined.
invite teachers to use the ongoing bar graph in any curriculum projects
appropriate. If you take digital photos of these activities, e-mail
them to Caryl Doetsch and she will post them on our Food Drive page.
Her e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also include
lesson descriptions that might not be so photogenic and they will
be listed as
The Northfield Food Pantry is in great need; this is a wonderful
community event and we hope you will help us make it extremely successful.
If you have any questions please contact the appropriate person
from your school.
