Over 8200 Pounds of Food Helps Tackle Hunger
The Prince Avenue Christian School students contributed 8200 pounds of canned and boxed food to the ACTS (Area Churches Together Serving) food bank through the Tackling Hunger, Pound for Pound drive sponsored by the school’s National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society.
The drive nearly reached its goal of donating enough pounds of food to equal the total weight of the varsity football team. Over 1,700 of the cans were donated at the Wolverines football game against Pinecrest Academy, and the NHS and NJHS presidents Mary Catherine McElroy and Emily Weaver, and Head of School Danny Howell, announced the total to Mr. Rainey Hiss, Coordinator for the Oconee County Food Bank and Clothes Closet which is supported by ACTS.
