The theme for this week’s collection is Kids Dress as Teachers and Teachers Dress as Kids! Not necessarily a certain teacher or kid, but kids might wear fancier clothes and teachers might wear sportier clothes or Vineyard Vines.
March was a record month for the food pantry. Sudbury schools collected a record setting 5,322 items and Haynes contributed 1,216 of those items. Our monthly goal at Haynes is to collect at least 1,000 items. With your help, we are consistently exceeding that goal! Thank you and please help us continue to end the year strong!
