Orono School’s collected hundreds of pounds of non-perishable items in our 6th year participating in the WE Scare Hunger food drive. From October 29 – November 1, students in grades K – 12 brought in non-perishable food items to be donated to the Maple Plain Food Shelf. We partnered with two local businesses during the week – Carlson Wellness Clinic in Maple Plain and ChiroCenter in Long Lake to collect food donations from local customers.
Members of the high school club, Youth in Action, also went to elementary classrooms to spread the word about WE Scare Hunger. The middle school group, Future Leaders in Training (FLIT) also assisted with the food drive.
