Hello Starkey Families,
Once again it's that time of year when Starkey students and families of Starkey Elementary give their time and effort to help the Salvation Army supply non-perishable food items for those in need. The need will be high again this holiday season, therefore, any items will be greatly appreciated.
Each classroom has a collection box for these items and can be sent via your child. The annual "Golden Can" trophy will be awarded to the class from each grade that has the most items. Also, the elementary school with the most items will receive the Salvation Army "Golden Can" trophy. Last year we had over 7,000 items. Let's do it again this year!
The food drive will last until Friday November 22nd.
The following is a suggested list of some non-perishable food items: Canned meats, canned fruits, baking goods, candy, instant soups, dressing, gravies, powdered drinks, canned juices, canned vegetables, dry box meals, boxed desserts, snack items, pastas, sauces, seasonings, coffee/tea, and box breakfasts.
Thank you for your continued support!
