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.

The Hudsonville Community benefitted…

…and we went bowling because of your generosity!

Excitement for the opportunity to help others grew quickly as the PE teachers announced that the PE CARES Food Drive would begin. Some students bought food items using their own money. Other students collected food items from their neighbors. Families worked together to gather food from their pantries or road trip to the local grocery stores. 

In the end, over 400 food items were collected by the students and families from our classroom. These donations were added to all of the food items gathered by the other classrooms in our school and were distributed by LOVE Inc.

Thank you for making this food drive a HUGE success! 🙂

As you can see, it was a LOT of fun…thanks again! 🙂
