Kim Jones’ third grade class at Westfield Elementary enjoyed a pizza party recently celebrating the 495 cans the students donated during 15 Days of Food canned food drive.
“We surpassed our school goal of 1,100 with a total of 1,740 cans, which were donated to Pilot Mountain Outreach to help people in our community who are going through a challenging time,” said Angie Edwards, computer lab instructor at Westfield Elementary.
Pilot Mountain’s Outreach Director, Jimmy Caparelli, delivered the pizzas with many thanks from the outreach.
Jones’ students shared the pizza with April Worrell’s third-grade class to celebrate the end of their joint-service project.
“We are so grateful for the generosity of our students and their families, which is making a huge difference in our community,” said Edwards.
