The Desert Sky National Junior Honor Society will be sponsoring the 10th annual Canned Food Drive beginning Monday, November 3rd through Friday, November 21st. The food collected during this time benefits the St. Rita Outreach Program and helps families in the Vail community. Our goal this year is to collect 5,000 of the following items:
Boxed mashed potatoes
Biscuit mix/Corn muffin mix
Boxed pie or dessert
In addition, each advisory will be collecting $25 toward the purchase of a turkey. Our goal is to raise enough money to buy 30 turkeys! If you have any questions, please contact Katie Vera firstname.lastname@example.org or 879-2764.
