The “Neighborhood Food Drive” works very well for students that need to get volunteer hours. After students have conducted a food drive, their parents always comment about how excited their children got about doing such a good deed. Children of all ages know how important it is to make sure no one goes hungry! Please make sure the drive is conducted with parental guidance.
