Every year, the Chaparral family joins together to donate cans to the Parker Task Force. The annual Food Drive started October 24 and ended on November 4. Goods include everything from cans to bottled soap and diapers. “They don’t have to be just food items, a lot of the donations are basically daily essentials that people need,” said Alex Lehman, Senior Class President in Student Government.
Most cans and other dry food items were donated through fourth period classes. Some classes offered extra credit or other incentives for bringing in a number of cans. Fortunately, the Food Drive landed right on Halloween week, making it so students were then able to go trick or canning versus trick or treating. Students simply went door to door asking for unused cans rather than candy. This was a fun and creative way to support the Parker community.
As of November 3rd, Adames fourth period class leads with 849.5 cans with Finnefrock close behind. Chaparral bringing together 20,542 cans in total.
