Northside Students Hold Traditional Thanksgiving Food Drive
Northside School held its traditional Thanksgiving food drive again this November. Students, their families, and their teachers throughout the school donated hundreds of assorted food items. The staff also contributed monetary donations to purchase gift cards at local food stores for turkeys.
Mrs. Heaney, third grade teacher, and her students sorted the various cans, bags, and boxes of food. The efforts of Head Custodian, Bob Mehm, School Nurse, Cara Rutzel, Social Worker, Samantha Romano, and Principal, Frank Mortillaro, helped to implement this food drive for Northside families in need. All contributed to the success of this year's Thanksgiving Food Drive.
