Canned Food Drive

Canned Food Drive 

Fruitland Intermediate School, under the leadership of the SGA, will be participating in an annual Harvest for the Hungry “Kids Helping Kids Food Drive” campaign.  This program provides an opportunity for children to collect food for the less fortunate and volunteer their time.    We will begin collecting food on Thursday, Nov. 11, 2021, and will continue until December 9, 2021. One-third of those served by emergency food programs in Maryland are children under 18.  Through Kids Helping Kids, students learn about one of the most solvable social issues of our time – hunger and take-action, which allows them to feel that they are making a real difference.  Kids Helping Kids is a wonderful way to build school spirit.
