The results are in for our annual GTA Stuff-a-Bus Food Drive for the Greece Ecumenical Food Shelf- thank you to EVERYONE who contributed!
This brings us over 117,000 lbs. since we started in 2006. That’s the weight of about 61.5 fully-loaded 1982 Chevy Chevettes. This was a 700 lb increase compared to 2019. Also, some schools used their donations for their own in-school food shelf, so the totals were actually a little higher.
We have total numbers by school going back to 2010, Arcadia’s 2,458 was the 3rd most ever (behind ARHS 3,215 in 2010 and ARHS 2,954 in 2017).
Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Today’s federal holiday is designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities.
