Four Local High Schools Participate in a Food Drive Competition

 

It’s a friendly competition among local high schools, all for an important cause.
Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan has a look at four local high schools that are helping a local non-profit make a difference.
The winners of the food drive challenge will be announced and presented with their prizes at Pine Tavern Restaurant on May 1st.

Though you can no longer drop off cans to the high school of your choice, you can still support them and NeighborImpact with a monetary donation.
When you donate make sure to write the school name you’d like to support in the donation memo line.
Every one dollar donation allows the organization to distribute 7 pounds of food or five meals.
