Food Drive Competition at Butler Junior High

            Monday afternoon proved to be an exciting one here at HSP! Susan Wright, the student council adviser at Butler Junior High, drove her minivan over to our facility to drop off an enormous food donation. The food that was jam-packed into her van was generously donated by Butler’s students and their families.
            Over the past few weeks, Butler’s student council spearheaded a food drive. To make it more interesting, each grade level collected a different type of food item that we were currently lacking at HSP (like peanut butter and jelly, cereal, and canned vegetables) to compete against one another to see who could procure the most food of that specific type. This food drive was incredibly successful, and we applaud these young students for displaying such incredible philanthropic initiative.
            What’s even more exciting is that this food drive was one last push before the Feinstein Challenge wraps up this coming Wednesday. The more monetary and food donations HSP receives, the larger percentage of the million dollars (that is to be split by the nonprofit organizations participating) we will receive.

We extend our sincerest gratitude to the Butler Junior High student council for helping us feed the hungry in our community. We’d also like to thank the faculty, the students, and their families for participating in this wonderful event. Keep up the good work, everyone!
