Leadership continues food drive tradition

November 20, 2008 — by Mira Chaykin

Marching band members continued their tradition of collecting food donations for Second Harvest Food Bank on their Senior Night, held Nov. 20. This year, leadership will also continue to help the hungry, said leadership adviser Karen Hyde.

Leadership will expand the charitable tradition by collecting food at band concerts throughout November. There are more opportunities to contribute to the cause in the duration of December.

There will be donation bins set up at the Symphonic Wind Ensemble and String Orchestra joint concert on Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m., the Symphonic and Jazz Band concert on Dec. 11 at 7:30 p.m., and the Choir Winter Concert on Dec. 17 at 7:30 p.m. Bins will be in the McAfee unless otherwise specified and are asking for two cans from each student, said Hyde.

They will also be collecting cans in bins in classrooms and in the office.

“We hope that the school and students will embrace this opportunity to appreciate what they have and give back to others,” said Hyde.
