Fall Food Drive Totals

We are grateful to all our families and students who contributed to our annual fall food drive benefiting Our Daily Bread Food Pantry here in Mansfield. We collected 1,880 pounds of food in total! J/J gave 1,246 pounds and Robinson 634 pounds.

The top 3 classes at J/J (where each class weighs their contributions) were Mrs DeAngelis (5th grade) with 234 pounds, Mrs Parent (4th grade) with 87 pounds and Mrs Sullivan (5th grade) with 86 pounds.

Our collection went very smoothly thanks to our many parent volunteers and 17 Mansfield High School honors students who helped us finish in record time. A special thanks to Nikki Sawayer for transporting the food to the pantry (three trips!) and, of course, to our fabulous food drive chair Tammy Loftus.

Thank You!
