Student Council loaded, donated and delivered canned food and Ramen noodles to Frisco Family Services on Tuesday as part of a school wide food drive.  

“Student Council did the food drive because it’s the season of giving,” Student Council President Grant Buss said. “We felt like it was a good time to give to our community and gather food from people who are really blessed with the opportunity to buy or make their own food.”

Student Council carries out the food drive each year in hopes of not only giving to the community, but teaching students why it’s important to give.

“We do this food drive every school year,” Student Council member Allie Glass said. “It allows students to have the opportunity to help and learn about helping others in need while we’re at school, because we’re so fortunate here.”

This year, Student Council raised more than they had hoped for.

“We raised enough to fill a school bus,” Buss said. “The food is going to Frisco Family Services and from there they usually do dinners for each family that is, of course, in need of one.”

Throughout the holiday season, Student Council continues to give back to the community through Toy drives and community services.

“We always hope to accomplish helping out our community during the holiday season,” Student Council member Ashley Madden said. “We always try to in the best way we think possible.”
