The Daily Platter is the blog of St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance, located in Phoenix, Arizona.
St. Mary’s Food Bank employees in Surprise was VERY happy to see the bus from Happy Valley Elementary School pull up in its parking lot on Tuesday morning. Every year, the students from Happy Valley conduct a huge food drive and then bring what they have collected to the food bank – forming a huge human chain to fill bin after bin with canned food items.
This year, the second graders (Mrs. Johnson) and sixth graders (Ms. Campaigne) delivered more than 3,200 pounds of food to help feed the hungry of Arizona this holiday season. This is the second straight year they school has topped the 3,200-pound mark, and the Patriots appeared to have a lot of fun making the donation.
Thank you Happy Valley Elementary School, for making Thanksgiving better for so many. And have a Happy Thanksgiving yourselves!
