Help Fight Hunger One Can at a Time
The annual Hunger Games has begun. In an effort to collect canned food, for the Tarrant Area Food Bank, Castleberry High School’s Student Council is asking students to help fight hunger. Each homeroom class will be collecting cans from students.
In Tarrant County, one in four are children live in a food-insecure household, according to facts provided by the Tarrant Area Food Bank. The families served, by the Tarrant Area Food Bank, include single parents earning minimum wage, senior citizens on fixed incomes, chronically ill individuals, severely disabled individuals, unemployed workers, laid-off workers, and homeless families and individuals. Overall, children make up nearly one-half of all individuals served by the Tarrant Area Food Bank.
CHS Students are asked to drop off their canned goods with their second period teachers. Parents are welcome to bring in donations to the main office.
To keep the donations coming in, a class winner will be named for whoever can collect the most cans. An additional winner will be named for the class that can design the most creative can stacking design. The rules for the can stacking contest are simple. In order to avoid damage to the canned labels, no tape or glue can be used. Only saran wrap.
Help a great cause, this Thanksgiving, and bring in your canned goods today.
