S-E students show their generosity in food drive

SHERBURNE – Sherburne-Earlville’s first graders challenged their peers to collect 600 non-perishable food items by the 100th day of this school year. With roughly 500 elementary school students, teachers agreed the goal was an attainable one, but they were surprised to end up with a mound of food stacked almost 1,300 items high.



Initially the food was meant simply to benefit a Backpack Program run by two high school students, Elijah Morris and Jordan VanAlthuis, which disseminates the donated food among children in need.
