"Indians For the Cupboard"

At the last NWKL meeting, the Administrators and Athletic Directors in attendance were challenged to have a competition among the schools in the league to benefit their local food pantry. Beginning December 3, the St. Francis schools will begin collecting items to donate to the food pantry. On Friday evening, December 14, we will be playing Dundy County in basketball. Those who bring two canned food donations will receive $1 off their admission price to the game. You can also make a financial contribution there, as well. The competition will end on Monday, December 17. On Tuesday, December 18, SFCHS students will take the items to the food pantry.

The competition will be scored as follows - 5 points:  canned meats, regular sized cereal boxes, Velveeta cheese blocks, jams, jellies, peanut butter, canned meals (ravioli/chili), toilet paper. 3 points:  canned vegetables and canned fruits, canned soups, hamburger/chicken/tuna helper, pasta, hygiene items (soap, toothpaste, q-tips, shampoo, etc), dried fruit, parmesan cheese. 1 point: ramen noodles, fruit cups, jello cups, pudding cups.

Drop-off locations will be in both schools, at all 3 banks, and at the grocery store. If you would like to give a financial donation to the project, please send the checks to the school (PO Box 1110) made out to the Food Pantry and we will add the totals up and include them in our competition totals and then make sure the Food Pantry receives the donation. If you would like to make a donation but would prefer a few students to come to your door to pick up the items, please contact Susan Dinkel at 785-772-7058 or e-mail her at sdinkel@usd297.org.
