Souper Bowl of Caring – Thank you!

We collected over 38,000 pounds of food last week.  That is 8,000 pounds more than last year!  We filled over 186 white bin boxes, and it took three trucks to cart our food away this year.
Thank you so much to all the parents who brought in unbelievable amounts of food, and also to the volunteers who were there day after day.  Without you, this monumental task would not be achievable.
We also want to thank the West University staff.  A great tradition that serves the underprivileged in our community.
The overall winners were:
Protein:  5th Grade Durham (1,694 points)
5th  – Arrant, for the most weight overall (2,955 lbs)
4th  – McIntyre (1,575 lbs)
3rd  – McClintock (1,518 lbs)
2nd – Stone (1,029 lbs)
1st  – McMillan (1,306 lbs)
K    – Saleem (995 lbs)
Congratulations to the winning classes for their extra efforts in bringing in food.  Thank you again for contributing and making this such a great event!
