Dear Noyes Families,
One of our school’s Core Values is Caring for Others. One of the ways we practice caring is by supporting the Sudbury Food Pantry. Next Friday (9/29) is our first collection. The day of the Food Drive, third graders gather and sort the collections and parent volunteers drive them over to the Food Pantry.
We need YOUR HELP! Noyes has the record for the most donations and is always one the biggest contributor; let’s keep working hard! We ask families, if it’s possible, to donate at least three items. Students can bring in donations throughout the entire week! We collect all kinds of items like pasta, cereal, and canned goods, but we cannot accept perishable or expired items.
Every month there will be a different theme (which is very exciting for the kids). September happens to be Hunger Action month. It is promoted nationally and by the Greater Boston Food Collection. The representative color of hunger is orange, so the theme will be to 'Wear Orange" (How much orange can you wear?). Food Pantry’s wish list this month includes: LARGE SOUPS (Progresso, Chunky), BOXED RICE (Near East, Rice A Roni), BOXED MEALS (boxed potatoes, taco kits), TOMATO (jars of sauce), CEREAL, SNACKS (full-size chips & cookies), CONDIMENTS (salad dressing, ketchup, mayo), BAKING (brownie & cake mix, frosting) and PASTA.
Thank you in advance for supporting this worthy cause. We know it makes such a difference for members of our community and beyond.
