On Sunday, May 20, more than 22 kids from several of the Laingsburg youth groups joined split into five teams and spread out around the greater Laingsburg area to collect nearly 1,000 individual food items and more than $300 in donations for the Laingsburg-Area Food Bank.

Each team received points for the items and money they collected. The group as a whole earned enough total points for a pizza and ice cream party with those who participated!
The winning team was decided by .45 points, with a last minute $1 donation from parent Marty Divine.
Most importantly, the students learned from Food Bank Publicity Coordinator Tricia Butch that you never know if the person next to you has had a meal in the last 24 hours.
Places like the food bank can help those who need to put something on the table. She also added that the need for donations is very high right now.
