Heartwood Center Food Drive for Children

CCPS recently participated in a food drive meant to provide the children of Caroline County with ready to eat or easy to prepare foods for when there is no adult supervision in the home.

The CHS BETA Club and the Interact Club worked together to collect 724 food items for this drive.

Thank you to all who donated to this most worthy cause.
