Food Drive (Day One)
Today marked the start of the first annual (I hope) food drive at W.G.A.S.H. I learned how to run a school wide drive by watching the students and faculty at the school I taught at in Washington (See this post or this one).
My current school has never done a food drive that tried to incorporate the entire student body so the challenges have already manifested themselves. Today, the freshmen were supposed to be stationed at the local grocery store to collect food. No one showed up other than the senior student council members assigned to help monitor the young ones. Oh well. We still collected around 400 items.
That was phenomenal. The vice-principal stopped by and noted that we've already collected what previous food drives have collected in their entirety (previous drives have been very small scale and perhaps not well advertised).
Well, I hope tomorrow nets more students participating, but more importantly, I hope we can bring in over 500 items.
