Second Harvest Food Drive December 2 - 13
Posted 11/20/2019 06:00PM

26th Annual Evergreen School District
Second Harvest Food Drive
December 2 - 13

For over 26 years, the families of Evergreen School District have given much needed food to our community through their participation in our annual Second Harvest food drive. Last year Evergreen School District collected 31,235 pounds of food which = 24,026 meals. We were the only school district in the area awarded by Second Harvest with a "Platinum" Award.

Become a part of this wonderful tradition
and keep this momentum going

Our goal this year is to collect 35,000 pounds of food. This equals 27,005 meals! Barrels to collect food donations are located in the kindergarten wing of Silver Oak until Friday, December 13.

As we gather with our friends and loved ones this holiday season, we are reminded that we're all on the same mission. Whether we donate money to provide food or bring that food home to our families, we want everyone to get the food they need to thrive.

Your online gift will help lift the burden of hunger for local parents so they can work hard to provide brighter opportunities for their kids. You can make a secure, tax - deductible financial donation in a matter of minutes: www.shfb.org/donatenow

Thank you for being a Hunger Hero this holiday season!
