Delmar School District Canned Food Drive

On October 21st and November 11th, Delmar High’s student government association will be collecting canned goods at the gate of our home football games.  For every canned good donated folks will get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a basket of “Delmar” goodies including a Delmar sweat suit and local restaurant gift certificates.

Last year we collected over 9,000 cans in the school alone. We hope to exceed that number with the home football game donation opportunity.  With the 9,000 cans we sent home backpacks full of food to help meet the needs of at risk students over the winter break when they have no access to our school breakfast and lunch  programs.  We also managed to box up several days worth of meals for 100 deserving families and sent the remaining  boxes of food to Harvest Ministries in Delmar.

We hope to do as well this year and thank everyone for their continued support.
