During this season of Thanksgiving, we often reflect on the blessings that we have in our lives. The teachers thought it would be a wonderful time to be a blessing in someone else’s life by offering donations to the Williston Community Food Shelf. If you find yourself in a position that you are able to, please bring in non-perishable food items, personal hygiene items or household paper products by Friday, November 18th. Here is an excerpt directly from the Food Shelf with suggestions regarding donations:
If you are interested in making a donation of food, our guideline suggest that your donations be of non-perishable foods in intact, unopened and undamaged containers that are of current date. We welcome donations of pasta, pasta sauce, canned vegetables and fruits, soup, tomato products, canned protein, tuna, crackers, canned beans, coffee and tea, cereal, snacks, juice, macaroni and cheese, and rice and pasta side dishes. We are also happy to receive toilet tissue, personal hygiene products, condiments, and pet food. Unfortunately, we cannot use large packing of products that you might purchase at warehouse stores.
There will be collection receptacles around the school for the items that you bring in. If possible, please involve your child in the purchasing and delivery process so they are aware of the gesture of giving to someone in need. We will also be engaging the children in activities to sort and count the items in school before we deliver them. Thank you in advance for your participation. Every item helps to make a difference.
