Food drive kicks off Monday

The annual Ben Davis Thanksgiving food drive runs Monday, November, 10, through Monday, November 17.  This project, sponsored by your 2015 Senior Class officers, is our largest project of the year. This is huge project that feeds more than 300 families district wide and costs more than $7,000 to fund.  Each family’s Thanksgiving meal includes three bags of groceries.
There are several different ways in which you can help to make this a success:
1) Collect non-perishable food items in your 1st period class.  As you collect food items, place them in a bag.  Keep count of the number of items you collect.  As you fill a bag, put your name on the bag, and bring it to the Main Office.  The class that collects the most food items will win a free HOT breakfast prepared by “Waffle Guy.”  (If you have not heard about him and his incredible waffles, you are definitely in for a treat.  These are gourmet waffles.)
2) Provide monetary donations.  All checks can be made payable to Ben Davis High School.  If you collect cash and/or change, you can bring it to the Main Office and we will receipt it for you.
3) You can sponsor a family for ONLY $25.
The goal of the Senior Class Officers is to have each first period class collect $25 and three bags of food.  By meeting this goal, we will be able to feed more families in our Township.
if you have any questions, please feel free to see Marci Royalty, Jessica Hobbs, or Melissa Edwards.
