Each classroom will be collecting non-perishable food items now through Thursday, January 11. All canned goods/dry goods will be taken to the Autauga Interfaith Care Center.

Also, each student that brings in 8 or more cans/dry goods will be awarded a free dress down day (date TBA).
Items on the “much needed” list are bottled water, and items that can be prepared with water such as oatmeal, mac-n-cheese, etc. Here are some other suggested items: pasta, rice, peanut butter, granola bars, and of course, regular canned goods.
