Fairview Elementary School holds food drive for the needy

Fairview Elementary recently completed a food drive to support Helping Hands Charity in Fairview. Students, teachers, and staff worked together to bring in items over a two weeks period. Classes competed against each other for the right to display the Can Man poster. 

Staff were divided into super hero teams and vied to raise the most each day and hear their team name announced on the announcements. Students worked to not only bring in items, but to sort, organize, and box up the food as it would come in each day, inspecting for expired or damaged goods.

Altogether, over 4,400 items were collected for Helping Hands Charity in Fairview. Helping Hands helps provide food, clothing, and other resources to families in need. FES really loves helping others and showing how together we can change the world.
