Several students in Ford and Keithley Middle School's Support Centers
worked with school staff to raise money, with which they used to shop
for food. Part of the food they purchased with the donated money will be
given to Central Pierce Fire and Rescue's annual holiday food drive,
while the other part will be used by school counselors to prepare food
baskets for school families in need. In total, the students procured
over $600 worth of food. It was a great learning and skill-building
Schools and student groups throughout the district participate in various food and clothing drives.
