Southwest Elementary Canned Food Drive

Southwest Elementary Canned Food Drive

The third grade team at Southwest led a school-wide community service project collecting canned food for the Pastor’s Pantry in Lexington, NC. This opportunity allowed students to understand the value of civic responsibility as they gave back to those in need in their community and recognize the impact of their efforts when they work together to achieve a common goal. Each class competed to see who could bring in the most cans each day. The overall winning class was Mrs. DeLapp’s 2nd grade, which donated 325 cans and earned a pizza party!  Way to go, SOUTHWEST!!! 


SWE would especially like to thank all of the parents for helping out and contributing to the canned food drive this year. Lending a helping hand is what COMMUNITY is all about!! Southwest is a family all about GIVING and we LOVE our COMMUNITY!! canned foodrive
