Successful Food Drive at Williams Middle School

The students & faculty of J.W. Williams Middle School recently participated in our District wide Students Serving Others (SSO) program by donating over 4,400 cans of food & diapers to Helping Hands.  The students were challenged to bring in the most canned goods with Ms. Lauren Weller’s class and Mrs. Dawn Andrew’s class ending in a tie for 1st place for the 7th grade group  & Coach Andy Merten’s class earning the bragging rights for the 8th grade class.  These students were treated to a “Breakfast Bar” party sponsored by Chiloso’s & IHOP.  In addition to the food donation, a $510 cash donation was presented to Helping Hands from proceeds made at their Student/Faculty game.

Special thanks go to Taylor Sher, WMS counselor secretary, for orchestrating the food drive and making it such a great success!Pictured are just some of the many ​WMS students that made this project so successful. Helping to load the Helping Hands’ truck are:  Kneeling:  Gretta Sonnen, Chelsea Silva, & Travis Mote.  Standing L to R:  Spencer Henisey, Brooke Patterson, Justin Mitchell, Austin Smith, Andrew Peal, Anthony Khabaz, Coach Andy Mertens, & Preston Gage.
