FCC Drive Away Hunger

Ruth Pawson School will once again participate in the FCC Drive Away Hunger program by collecting donations of food for people who are hungry in our area. By participating in this program, FCC will include our school in two draws for a $500 donation.

Please send food items to school with your child between Oct. 5 - 12, to support this program. FCC staff will bring a big tractor and trailer to collect our donations on Oct. 12.

Donating food isn't the only way to participate; we are also doing an in-school activity so every student can get involved.
