WINFIELD — The Winfield-Mount Union Student Leadership Council believes food is a basic human right, and in hopes of supporting this basic human right, they will host their annual food drive next week.
Wednesday, Nov. 16 the council will accept donations of non-perishable food in jars, cans, and sealed packages in the white truck outside of the school Lobby.
The food will be delivered to the Winfield food pantry and benefit local families.
“We have done this every year I have been here,” said Student Leadership Council Advisor Shawna McCabe who has been at WMU for the last seven years.
For further questions or to arrange an earlier drop-off time, contact Jill Blake or Shawna McCabe at email@example.com or Shawna.firstname.lastname@example.org
Suggested donations include canned fruits and vegetables, tuna, pancake mix and syrup, noodles, ramen, ketchup, tomato sauce and juice, peanut butter and jelly, Jell-O, pudding, cereal, pizza crust mix, hamburger helper, instant potatoes, tortillas, and juices.
However, the council is happy to accept any non-perishable donation because their focus is solely on helping others in an immediate and tangible way by meeting their basic needs for food.
“We have the chance to give others the opportunity to have the kind of Thanksgiving meals we get to have,” Student Leadership Council Senior Abby Miller said.
