Houston's Annual Food Drive
The Whitney Houston Academy Student Council had its annual school-wide food drive to help families in need have a special Thanksgiving. The Student Council did an excellent job in heading the Food Drive.
A special thanks to the Mayor of East Orange for donating turkeys, Links of West Orange organization who gave 12 food bags with turkeys and all the trimmings and, Mrs. Webster and her friends provided 30 large pumpkin pies, hams and turkeys.
Each class was given a bag to fill with can and dry goods and the one with the most cans and dry goods would receive a Pizza Party. Mrs. Matarazzo's 4th grade class won the Pizza Party with over a hundred and fifty cans/dry goods.
The Houston Academy Food Drive was a major success this year and we hope to feed more and more families next year.
Thank you, Norma Kingka
