NJHS Canned Food Drive November 14th – December 6th!



The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) has kicked off their annual Canned Food drive to assist needy families during the holiday season. The food collected will be donated to the Fredericksburg Food Bank which feeds families in Caroline, Fredericksburg, and Spotsylvania. Your help is greatly needed!

Our goal is to collect 2500 canned/boxed items by December 6th. Please have your son/daughter bring in canned goods to their homeroom teacher. The winning homeroom class will receive a pizza party before school lets out for Winter Break! If you have any questions about the food drive, please contact NJHS sponsors, Karen Mott, kmott@ccps.us or Mary Yanos, myanos@ccps.us
