OMS began its annual food drive the second week of November and by the last week, had beat the goal of 8,000 food items. With food donations and money combined, the total was 8,696. Each dollar counted for two items since Christian Neighbors can get many of the canned goods at cost.
Student council members spent a day sorting the donations, boxing them up and hand-delivering them to Christian Neighbors where they were able to stock the shelves themselves. This has been a long tradition for the middle school food drive and it's very meaningful for the students to see first hand how their donations help the community.
