Bellefontaine High School hosted a food drive last week to help give back to the community during this holiday season.
The total number of items is still being counted, but BHS hopes to have collected 2000 cans.
Pictured left: A small section of the cans collected during the food drive.
Interact, a service club at the high school, helped coordinate the food drive. Several service clubs helped Interact members collect cans throughout the week.
Collection of canned goods is a competition between first period classes. The class that collects the most items will win breakfast, including timbits and hot chocolate from Tim Hortons.
To help encourage kids to support the food drive, Interact made each day a different theme day and asked students to dress up.
On Monday, the theme was Breakfast - We are the Champions!
Tuesday's theme was 60's Decade Day.
On Wednesday students were supposed to wear clothes for Country Music, or camouflage. For $1, students could also wear a hat for the day.
Thursday's theme was 80's Music Day.
The week concluded with Spirit Day on Friday, where kids were asked to wear their best Chieftain gear.
Daily prizes were drawn for students that put their names in a box in the library for participating in the dress-up days.
