WCSD: Thanksgiving Thanks Print

The Washington Education Association has again sponsored sacks of food for needy families in our schools at Thanksgiving. This is the tenth year we have done this in honor of American Education Week. School Employees from our district made this possible through time and monetary donations. It is a way we can give back to our school community. Families are suggested by school counselors, principals, assistant principals and nurses. This year we donated 141 meals to give to families in our district. This year a sack of food cost $18 (the price 10 years ago was $16) and consisted of: a turkey roll, 5 lbs of potatoes, 1 lb bag of baby carrots, salad mix, box of stuffing, canned green beans, canned peas, canned corn, canned cranberry sauce, canned sweet potatoes, 1 gravy envelope, 1 package brown 'n serve rolls and 1 no bake dessert. Thank you to everyone that made this possible & especially to Fareway Grocery for all your help with this project! Happy Thanksgiving!
