The student council at Crestview Middle School held their 1st canned food drive for the month of January. They asked the faculty and students to bring in canned food items to help the Bread of Life food pantry at Covington United Methodist Church. Each homeroom class competed for the chance to win a pizza party. Our students and faculty brought in over 2,887 items for the month.
First place went to Mr. LaKendrick Lee’s 8th grade class. They brought in 796 cans. Second place went to Mr. Mark McClain’s sixth grade class with 348 items. Third place went to Ms. Deborah Walker’s 6th grade class who brought in 306 items.
We are so proud of our students for putting others before themselves and helping out the community. They worked very hard and brought in cans and items daily to help others. We would like to thank Dr. Morris, the faculty, staff and students for doing such an amazing job!
People who are in need of food are able to come and get it for free on the first and third Saturday of the month from 9:00-11:00am. There are two major distribution locations that operate in Tipton County (Covington and Munford). These two locations are staffed by over 100 volunteers every month who help with transportation, stocking and distribution of food to families and individuals who come seeking assistance. Food is donated by local retailers via the Feeding America grant program, and they are a partner agency of the Mid-South Food Bank who helps provide patrons with nutritional food.
