When it comes to sharing the love, middle school 'can'

On Valentine's weekend, Homer Middle School had a "Share the Love" food drive to gather food for the Homer Community Food Pantry.

Homer Middle School's valentine to the community turned out to be a huge success. Advisory classes competed with each other, hoping to gather the most cans and win the coveted pizza party promised by the student council.

As the week went on, students brought in more and more food.

We thank the parents for letting the kids raid their food pantries to bring in cans.

By the end of the week, Homer Middle School wound up with a whopping 1700 cans of food.

Mrs. Hudson's winning advisory class had a total of 227 cans of food.

Way to go, Huskies.
