Food Drive 3/7-3/11 at Cherry Crest

Cherry Crest is hosting a Food Drive the week of March 7-11 to benefit Renewal Food Bank in Bellevue.

This food drive is organized by 5th graders from Girl Scout Troop 41164 as a part of their Bronze Award service project to raise awareness for food insecurity in our community. Troop 41164 has girls from both Bennett and Cherry Crest, and are hosting a concurrent food drive at Bennett Elementary.

Food drive donations (see for list) can be dropped off in the marked collection bins located in each of the grade-level wings, in the entrance foyer, and outside the covered area in front of the school. These donations will be gathered by the girls daily and delivered to Renewal Food Bank at the end of the food drive.

Clothing Donations needed
