Student food drive continues

Spring Grove High School Student Council members protested hunger on Friday night at Red's Hometown Market. Their goal was to bring attention to the need of food at the Houston County Food Shelf. They were summoning people to stop and donate food as part of their food drive.
These students are shown “protesting” hunger. From left are Cullen Patterson, Nicki Ellingson, Jordan Anderson, Addison Cross and Blaine Storlie.
They will be collecting food until Friday, Nov. 9, when they will be weighing all that they've collected during the Awards Night of the Channel One Student Food Drive.
The school collecting the most pounds of food per student will win additional food. All students at Spring Grove Public School are helping to collect food for the food shelf in Caledonia. Donations can be dropped off at Red's Hometown Market or at the school.
Other events the student council is hosting includes:
A scary movie - "Insidious" - (rated PG-13) will be shown on Halloween (Wednesday, Oct. 31) at 9 p.m. at the Spring Grove Cinema. A $3 donation will earn entrance to the movie.
Students in kindergarten through 12th grade will have the opportunity to wear a hat all day at school during Crazy Hat Day on Friday, Nov. 2. Students and staff participating need pay only $1, which will go to the food drive.
Monday, Nov. 5, visit Red's Hometown Market for a delicious turkey dinner. Student Council members will be helping serve the meals from 3 to 6:30 p.m. with proceeds going to the food drive.
The final school event for the food drive will be a favorite of the students - a dodgeball tournament. All participating teams pay $20 to enter the contest on Wednesday, Nov. 7.
