October 17-21, 2016
The students of District 34, Our Lady of Perpetual Help and District 30 are coming together in conjunction with Character Counts week to collect food items to be donated to the Northfield Township Food Pantry.
Items of great need are: pancake mix and syrup, pasta sauce, juice/juice boxes, coffee, tea, kid’s snacks/snack packs, cookies, crackers, macaroni & cheese, instant mashed potatoes, peanut butter, jelly, paper products, cereal, oatmeal, canned spaghetti, ravioli, chili, and corned beef hash. (Please check expiration dates.)
Another option is to donate money, which the Food Pantry can use to buy items from the Greater Chicagoland Food Bank at a greatly discounted rate. For example, a $1 donation is equivalent to purchasing 5 cans of food, which is far stronger use of money than is available to us.
For Students: The Book Fair is open from 7:15am - 4pm on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
For Parents: Visit the Book Fair during Parent-Teacher Conference Day on Friday, Oct. 21.
