The Riverview Goodfellows held their Annual Food Drive Campaign in the Riverview Schools again this year. And the district responded in a very big way.
The class in each of the elementary schools that collected the most food items was promised a Pizza Party from the Riverview Goodfellows.
The winners this year were Mrs. Parent’s first grade class at Memorial Elementary with 521 food items and a total of over 1,700 items for the school; the students of Mrs. Hunter’s third grade class at Huntington Elementary with over 1,500 food items; and the combined classes of Ms. Vollmerhausen and Mr. Ryan collected the most at Forest Elementary with 70 items collected.
Each class will receive pizzas from Riverview Pizza Place with drinks all delivered by Riverview Mayor Andy Swift.
Although not part of the competition for a pizza party, Riverview Community High School also participated in the food drive.
The students brought in more than 1,200 canned goods and raised $364 in donations.
The Riverview Goodfellows truly appreciated the awesome effort put forth by the entire school district to help make sure that “No Child goes without a Christmas”.
