At the 2017 PRE PTO annual Food and Change drive over 2,655 food items were collected for Shawnee Community Services Food Pantry. The Food Pantry was extremely grateful for our donation as their shelves have been bare for several weeks. We raised a total of $1,462.62 at our change drive. We will use this money to purchase blanket supplies for the Congenital Heart Defects Association (chdfamilies.org).  Students will make the blankets at our February Community Service day. We raised more money than we  will need for the blanket supplies and will send the remaining funds to the Shawnee Community Services. A BIG BIG thank you to all of those who volunteered and donated! P. Smiths class won a doughnut party for brining in the most food items (266 items) and the 2nd grade won an extra recess for brining in the most change ($372.76).
