Upper school community supports annual food drive

The upper school community collected seven frozen turkeys, filled four bins with groceries and donated cash gifts of more than $500 for its annual Pack the Pantry food drive for Miami Rescue Mission. The drive, organized by faculty member Astrid Dalins, took place over two days instead of two weeks because of the pandemic (with spaces socially distanced, there was little room to store items), but still inspired the generosity of teachers, staff and faculty.
RE freshmen donated canned vegetables and paper goods; sophomores brought corn bread mix and cooking oil; juniors collected cranberry sauce and rice; and seniors provided instant potatoes and stuffing mix. Many contributed checks or gift cards and some donated frozen turkeys. Students loaded items directly on the Miami Rescue Mission truck on the morning of November 18.
