Have you contributed to the Souper Bowl collection for 5th grade? Remember all donations of non-perishable food will be sent to the Lord’s Pantry. For my Martin Luther King Day service project, I put together a dozen birthday bags with cake mix, icing, decorated paper plates and napkins, candles…. When I dropped them off the volunteers could not have been more appreciative. DASD has many families who live in the borough and rely on this resource to supplement their monthly food budgets. 5th Grade is collecting until Friday Feb. 10. Please pick up a few extra cans and send them in. We have 706 students and staff at SC. Just imagine if each one brought in two items!
