food drive 2

Interact, an active community service club at Westhill, and JROTC are co-hosting Westhill's annual Thanksgiving Food Drive! WHS sends food to the Stamford Food Bank and Inspirica, an organization that provides housing, education, direct care and advocacy services to families across Stamford. We are asking kids to donate nonperishable food items and give others a reason to be thankful! The more cans that each student brings, the better their chance at being chosen to "pie" different teachers and staff 
including Mrs. Figluizzi and Mr. Pereira! 
Collection boxes are in every classroom!
The final collection day is Friday, November 20th

Thank you and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
