Manila Middle School FBLA sponsored a can drive to help Manila Lions Club with their Christmas baskets. The FBLA challenged each grade, fifth through eighth, to a contest to see who could collect the most cans.

The winning grade was treated to a snack party at the end of the day on Tuesday.

Lion Ty Presson thanked the students for their help and collected the 447 cans collected.

The seventh grade won the match bringing 153 cans, followed by the sixth grade with 134, fifth grade 108 and eighth grade 52.

They collected it all in less than a week.

"We appreciate each one who took a part in the drive," Heath Hawkins, Manila Middle School FBLA adviser, said.
