Sandy High School's Canned Food Drive wrapped up this morning as the school's Leadership students and Key Club members ventured over to St. Michael's Church to help the Sandy Kiwanis Club put all the food they collected into boxes. More than 40 students participated and food arrived from a number of schools in the Oregon Trail School District, including Sandy Grade School, Firwood Elementary, Naas Elementary, Boring Middle School and Cedar Ridge Middle School. Sandy High School FFA donated pears and apples for the boxes, while the high school also raised $1,415 for the efforts through the Night with the Pios, HeMan Volleyball and Krispy Kreme sales.
The Kiwanis Club put together 600 boxes of food for 300 area families in need this holiday season. The boxes, which each weigh between 50 and 60 pounds, will be distributed on Saturday.
