The annual Willard School Food Drive is held in the spring. Open Table in Concord relies on this Food Drive because this is the time of year when it is needed most, as summer approaches, and there is a decline in donations. Students will be asked to bring in non-perishable food items and personal hygiene products.
The food is collected by the 5th grade students, and under the supervision of Ms. Vitello, Willard’s School Counselor, 5th graders assist in all aspects from advertising, collecting, and packing of the donations.
In addition to donations for Open Table, Ms. Vitello is seeking boxes (ie. girl scout cookies, office materials, appliance boxes, etc.) for packing, and assistance in transporting the boxes to Open Table at the end of the week.
