Hampton Elementary School hosted its annual Thanksgiving food drive during the month of November in the computer lab to collect food for the Assistance Center of Towson.
Each grade collected certain food that was assigned to their grade level like mac and cheese, frosting, cranberry sauce, and other Thanksgiving food. “We collected 36 bags of Thanksgiving food and 10 boxes of miscellaneous food,” said Mrs. Dyer, the school counselor and coordinator of the drive.
The Student Council Association (SCA) helped Mrs. Dyer with the Thanksgiving food drive. They helped by taking the food that the students brought in and sorting it into the boxes that were assigned to the different food. The SCA also helped by announcing that the food drive was happening on WHES.
Another way Hampton donated to the Assistance Center of Towson was that they sold turkey grams and the money from the Turkey Grams went to the Thanksgiving food drive.
But the question remains, who created Mrs. McGobbles, the turkey sitting outside of the computer lab.
“Mrs. Goldsmith created Mrs. McGobbles a few years ago,” said Mrs. Dyer. She made it for one year, but I kept it because I liked it!"
Thank you everyone who donated to the Thanksgiving food drive, and if you didn’t you can maybe donate next year!
