‘Tis the Season for Giving for Wilshire Park Elementary Students

December 3, 2014 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import

The holiday season is a time when hungry families often have the biggest need for food assistance. To help feed the need, Wilshire Park Elementary students and families have hosted its annual Food & Fund Drive for the past six years. Donated food and funds benefit Second Harvest Heartland and our local food shelves.

When the food drive first started, the staff at Wilshire Park Elementary, located in Minneapolis, knew that they wanted to create a program that simply served others.

“The Second Harvest Heartland Food & Fund Drive has become a very important event for our learning community. We are fortunate to have students that are able to serve others in the donation of food and money to help families who are hungry,” Kari Page, Principal at Wilshire Park Elementary, said.

During this year’s Food & Fund Drive, Wilshire Park Elementary raised more than 2,000 pounds of food and over $1,400.

Thank you Wilshire Park Elementary staff, students and families—you are making the holidays brighter for our neighbors in need!
