Poplin Gives Back! Book Collection and Canned Food Collection
During the month of December students at Poplin Elementary were challenged to bring in canned food and non-perishable items to support local food banks. Each morning students in the Service Club, a club of fourth and fifth grade students who work on school-wide projects that serve the community, collected items placed outside of classroom doors. The last day of the drive Principal Scott Broome challenged everyone including staff to bring in at least one item. Over 23 boxes of canned food items were collected! After boxing all the food, it will be donated to Stephenson Presbyterian Church in Indian Trail which has a local food bank. Brianne Durant, a fifth-grade teacher, is the sponsor for the Service Club and organized the canned food collection.
This is the second collection students have participated in this school year. During November students were asked to bring in gently used books and coins. The books are being sent to military personnel through an organization called Red Grail Charities based in Lewisville, N.C. Students collected books and coins from November 5 - 21, 2014. Jennie Taylor, a second-grade teacher organized the book and coin collection.
