P.E. Cares-Food Drive

Below is a message from our P.E. teachers, Mrs. Nienhuis and Mrs. VanKoevering.

“The annual P.E. C.A.R.E.S food drive will be starting on November 6.  We are asking for your help by bringing in non-perishable food items for Love Inc. in Hudsonville.  Food items to consider are:
  • canned vegetables
  • canned fruits
  • pasta
  • rice
  • baked beans
  • black beans
  • kidney beans
  • peanut butter
  • tuna fish, etc.
 (please no ramen noodles)
We will be keeping track of how many items each class brings in for the food drive.

The class with the most items at the end of the day on Thursday, November 21 will win a bowling trip to Hudsonville Lanes and a P.E. C.A.R.E.S t-shirt.

This is a great opportunity for our students to care for their community, thanks for sharing in this service project with us at Georgetown.
