This month, we’ve enjoyed getting to meet and celebrate students who helped collect canned food for the KBTX Food for Families event in November.
Students from different schools, in different grades, all contributed to the 2019 food drive hosted by MidSouth Electric Co-op. Some schools within our territory made the act of giving more interesting by turning it into a competition. Classes who collected the most cans in their school won a pizza party provided by MidSouth.
We would like to thank everyone for their participation in Food for Families. With the help of our students, volunteers and the community, we donated 21,400 pounds of food and $13,300 to local food pantries!
