Geary students collected hundreds of pounds of canned goods and packaged food items for the Geary Food Pantry. The food drive was part of Homecoming Week activities at both the Elementary and Jr-Sr High School. Elementary students brought over 680 pounds of food items for the food pantry located at New Life Assembly of God Church. At the conclusion of the food drive, Elementary faculty and staff members transported donations to the food pantry where they unboxed, sorted, and shelved the food items for distribution to families in need. At the Jr-Sr High, the sixth grade class collected the most items, a total of 83 for the school. Donations from the school totaled 368. We want to thank students and their families for participating in our local food drive.
