EMS Food Drive for Social Services


EMS Food Drive for Social Services

ROXBURY (November 4, 2016) — Each year the Roxbury Township Public Schools celebrates character education and Red Ribbon Month during the month of October with weekly themed events and programs. 

One program that most of the schools take part in during this time frame is an annual food drive for Roxbury Social Services. This year was no different for Eisenhower Middle School. 

For two weeks, from October 14-28th, students brought in non-perishable food items for their respective grades collection pile. 

At the end of the collection, the grade with the most items won a Halloween Social which took place on Friday, October 28th at the end of the school day. The seventh grade won this year, but Roxbury Social Services came out the big winner! 

According to Principal Dominick Miller, “Eisenhower’s total collection this year was over 5,000 items. Eighth graders did a great job too and for their efforts, they will be getting an ice cream social in the near future.” 

The three top collectors were eighth grade sisters, Regina and Rachel Perry and seventh grader, Paul Corrente. These students were rewarded with EMS swag bags filled with goodies just for them. 

A handful of students took part on Friday in delivering the collected items to Janet Wald at Roxbury Social Services located at the Horseshoe Lake Complex.
