CMS Canned Food Drive

CMS Canned Food Drive of Olympic Proportion (2)

CMS 8th Grade Choir is hosting an Olympic-sized canned food drive to benefit Feeding Medina County.  The dates of the drive will be:
Wednesday, February 14 – Wednesday, February 28.

Each CMS home room has selected a country to represent.  Canned food/non-perishable items will be collected daily by the choir Olympic Committee.  Home rooms will be awarded medals based on the quantity of items collected daily.   Medals will then be assigned points – the country (home room) with the most points at the end of the games will win a donut breakfast – courtesy of 8th Grade Choir.  Parents can also bring items with them to conferences!

Items requested by Feeding Medina County:
Nutritious, non-perishable foods! Please DO NOT donate items that are past best by date. Donating items that are one year or more from today’s date is ideal. Large sized items are not good for FMC, so please donate the sizes noted.
