Christian Marrero– Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – LRHS will participate in the annual Mayors’ Feed the Hungry food drive from Nov. 5-16.

The food drive is sponsored by Quill and Scroll, and they will be collecting packaged and canned foods to give to the less fortunate during Thanksgiving.

The LRHS JROTC was one group that helped last year’s canned food drive.

Mustangs can turn in donations to their first period classes and whichever class collects the most food will win a donut and juice party hosted by Quill and Scroll sponsor Candice Delazzer.

Delazzer said, “Even if every first period had their students bring in only one can per week (two cans total), we could donate around 5,000 items!”

Items being collected include canned items such as soups, meats, vegetables as well as packaged foods such as rice, noodles, cereal, and other unopened items.
