Food for those who need it

MILFORD - A chance to give back to the community and still have some good, fun competition motivated the students of Delaware Valley High School to shatter the Thanksgiving Food Drive record on Tuesday, with a collection of nearly 10,000 food items. The student council’s food drive kicked off about three weeks ago. Homerooms throughout the school began donating food with two ends in mind: providing nourishment for the needy and winning a bagel breakfast if they donated the most. A trio of teachers joined forces as the “Can Crusaders” and motivated students throughout the food drive. During the last week, a dedicated student council representative dressed up as a large turkey also to remind students to bring in their items. Luhrs provided the transportation of the thousands of food items to the ecumenical food pantry in Milford where more volunteers awaited to help unload.
