CANNED GOODS DRIVE
Becky also headed up the canned goods drive that was held over the last two weeks. Donations were made to the Brown/Keya Paha County Food Bank in Ainsworth. We were overwhelmed by the amount of canned goods collected at local businesses including Kate’s Hair Care, the Turbine Mart, and Town and Country Market. Students also participated in the drive by bringing canned goods to school! Many thanks to all who donated and to Ms. Thornton for delivering our communities donation!
