Recently, the Student Council at Rockridge High School coordinated a food drive. In addition to the food collected at the high school, the junior high and the grade schools also contributed.

At the Rockridge Community Food Pantry, we had just cleared the shelves for our Thanksgiving distribution and these hardworking students brought box after box of non-perishable food to restock them. We are so fortunate to have them as part of our community.

Many thanks go to them and also to Aimee Neece who oversaw their efforts. When the students all work together, they can make a tremendous difference in their community! In this instance, they certainly made a difference to those less fortunate in our community!

Kudos to all who helped to make this food drive such a success!

Shirley & Dewey Flemming,
