Pennies for the Pantry!

SVMS is excited to be raising money for our Afton Food Bank during the month of December.  Bring any spare change into the office or library! Sierra Mitchell, director of the Afton Food Bank, explains what this money goes towards.
“This will benefit the children whose parents come and use the Afton Food Pantry. The holidays are a hard time for families financially. Every Christmas we try to include a stocking full of candy for every child and along with that a small toy. For the little kids we buy hot wheel cars or bubbles or coloring books. For older kids we buy candy or some small treat. All items are wrapped up and given out to the family when they receive their Christmas dinner. It’s little things like a small toy that mean the most to a child. All coins will be used to make sure each child receives a small present on Christmas Day!”
SMALL coins can make a BIG Change! Who doesn’t love a challenge, so it will be 7th vs. 8th Grade!

A celebration of success for academics and citizenship
