TRI COUNTY STUDENTS CONDUCT FOOD DRIVE
LOCAL COMMUNITIES VERY GENEROUS
The Tri County FFA Chapter, FBLA Chapter and the TC Student Council teamed up to conduct a community food drive on Tuesday, November 7th. The members visited residents in Plymouth, DeWitt and Swanton. The Tri County students collected 1,200 pounds of food to deliver to the food pantry at St. Johns Lutheran Church in Beatrice. Approximately 35 youth participated. The project was conducted prior to the many needs of individuals before Thanksgiving. Karen Mains, coordinator for the Gage Co. Food Pantry said the student's donation was the largest from one organization at one time in recent history.
FFA President Tiffany Pearson thanked all the students who helped but really appreciated all the generosity shown by the communities for the project.
