Manila Middle FBLA donates canned goods
Members of the Manila Lions Club, Tom Jaco and Dovie Sawyer, collected canned food donated by the Middle School students. The Manila Middle School FBLA sponsors the food drive each year to help the Lions Club fill the Goodfellow baskets distributed at Christmas.
The fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade students collected over 500 cans. There is a competition between the grades and this year's winner is the sixth grade. They collected 153 cans of green peas. The students received a snack party on Tuesday.
Heath Hawkins, Manila Middle School FBLA Adviser, expressed his appreciation to the students and the parents for helping make the food drive successful.
