Apache Junction High School students rally to fight hunger over the holidays

Posted

Students at Apache Junction High School are having a food drive competition to aid the Superstition Community Food Bank.

The event, initiated by the Student Council, has the whole student body engaged in collecting holiday-related canned goods and non-perishables for delivery to the food bank, 575 N. Idaho Road Suite No. 701 in Apache Junction, according to a release.

“Students are asked to bring donations to their first-hour class of the day. At the end of the drive, the first-hour class with the most donations will win a pizza party,” Kendall Powell, Student Council vice president, said in the release. “We’ve made it a fun competition and everyone is getting involved. So much so that we’ll probably continue the drive past Thanksgiving and into the first part of December. We missed doing a food drive last year because of COVID, so we were anxious to help out the food bank once again.”
