Western Middle School students band together for food drive

The recent Thanksgiving/Holiday Food Drive held at Western Middle School was the second drive put together to benefit Greenwich Neighbor-to-Neighbor.

With the holidays upon them and as part of their annual holiday food drive, students engaged in an epic “can-off” challenge. They banded together to collect more than 2,000 canned and boxed items as well as plenty of fresh food (with a dozen Thanksgiving turkeys thrown in for good measure)/

The donations to Greenwich Neighbor-to-Neighbor helped local residents in need to have a happy Thanksgiving, and food on their tables for the holidays.

“The Western Middle school students truly found helping the community such a rewarding experience, (and it didn’t hurt to best their challenger, Central Middle School), and are already looking forward to others ways to give and be involved in community projects,” reported Richard Crawford, International Baccalaureate coordinator and math teacher.

The students from Western Middle School will also be providing the Food Bank with fresh vegetables from their Community Garden located at the school during the spring and summer months. What started out as a simple science project for the students has turned into something much more special and with much more meaning and purpose.
