Howell Public Schools Collects 13,000 Canned Goods for Gleaners Community Food Bank
12/20/16 – The Howell Public Schools community is known for its generosity and willingness to support charitable organizations. This was shown once again during a recent canned food drive organized by Howell High School’s leadership class. Joining the high school in the drive were Hutchings Elementary, Northwest Elementary, Southwest Elementary, Highlander Way Middle School and Parker Middle School. Together the schools collected an impressive 13,000 canned goods that were donated to Gleaners Community Food Bank.
“Our goal was to collect 4,000 canned goods, so we are super excited that we collected so many. All of the schools are thrilled about it and so is Gleaners,” said Emily Clevenger, Howell High School senior and the chairperson of the canned food drive.
Gleaners Community Food Bank provides those in need with access to sufficient nutritious food and resources. The organization operates five distribution centers across Southeast Michigan.
