Whiteside Elementary School staff is creating a food pantry for families in need at their campus. To kick off the endeavor, a Drive By and Drop Off event took place Thursday morning as a way for parents to donate non-perishable food items at morning drop off. The contributions collected that morning provided weekend food sacks for 20 students.
Community partners Second Baptist Church, Teacher’s Touch daycare and a representative from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center School of Nursing are involved in the effort. More information about the donation drive can be found on the included flyer posted on the campus Facebook page:
