Food Bank Donations

The students and staff at Memorial Middle School donated over 2,000 canned good and nonperishable food items to the Middlebury Food Bank today, November 25. In this annual friendly competition, the sixth, seventh, and eighth graders competed with each other and the staff to see which group could donate the most items.

"We more than doubled our contributions from last year," said sixth grade teacher Mr. John Morris, who, along with colleague Mrs. Kerri Grieder and MMS parents, delivered the items to the food bank in the afternoon. "The students collected items in school, at Dinova's Market, and at a recent school dance. The students and staff blew the lid off our target numbers and, for that, we are so proud of their generosity!"
