Featured Food and Fund Drive: Wilshire Park Elementary

Food drive boxesFor the past six years, Wilshire Park Elementary students and families have hosted its annual food and fund drive to benefit Second Harvest Heartland.

When this drive first started, Wilshire Park staff knew that they wanted to create a program that simply served others with no real rewards to their students.

“The Second Harvest Heartland Food Drive has become a very important event for our learning community and 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

During this year’s food and fund drive, Wilshire Park Elementary raised over 2,000 pounds of food and over $1,400. Just in time for the holiday season – way to go!
