The Washington Elementary School District will host a Community Food Drive from Feb. 16 through Feb. 26 to benefit the St. Mary’s Food Bank. All 32 WESD schools and many of community partners will collect cans during this time.

Last year, this drive yielded 151,676 pounds, which was the second-largest drive in Arizona. If your office, church or other public location would like to be a collection site, partner with a school or sponsor one of the exciting contests the schools are working on, contact Jill Hicks at jill.hicks@wesdschools.org or 602-347-2644. If you wish to donate items to the drive or to receive a list of drop-off sites, also contact Jill Hicks.
