Hudsonville PE CARES

The annual P.E. C.A.R.E.S food drive will be starting on November 6. This is a project that is organized by the district’s physical education teachers who partner with Hudsonville’s Love INC.

We are asking for your help by bringing in non-perishable food items for Love Inc. in Hudsonville.  Food items to consider are canned vegetables and fruits, pasta, rice, baked beans, black beans, kidney beans, peanut butter, tuna fish, etc. (please no ramen noodles)

The food drive will continue until Nov. 21.  We will be keeping track of how many items each class brings in for the food drive.  The class with the most items at the end of the day on Nov. 21 will win a bowling trip to Hudsonville Lanes and a P.E. C.A.R.E.S t-shirt.

This is a great opportunity for our students to care for their community, thanks for sharing in this service project with us at Georgetown.
