School Supply Donation
A special Boggess Bengal Thank You to Michelle Allard (sister of Boggess Parent Melissa Dalton) for ferrying the school supplies donated by Boggess families to the Houston Food Bank Teacher's Aid Program.
These supplies will be available for teachers in Houston as part of the disaster aid following Hurricane Harvey.
Thank you to all who donated, and thank you again Michelle!
The Houston Food Bank is currently the largest Feeding America food bank in the U.S., in both the amount of food distributed to its partner agencies and in the size of its facility. Thanks to strong community support, the Food Bank uses only 5% of all resources for operation costs, which allows 95 cents of every dollar to feed hungry children, adults and seniors.
The organization focuses on balanced diets, nutrition education, and social services provided through its programs, such as Backpack Buddy, Kids Cafe, and Teacher's Aid Programs.
Named top charity in Texas by Charity Navigator for financial performance and accountability, the Food Bank provides 74 million nutritious meals to food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers and other agencies, feeding 137,000 people each week.
Student Council Canned Food Drive
As a part of the Bengal Creed, we serve our community. The Boggess Student Council is coordinating the canned food drive again this year, and have placed collection bins in each of the grade level hallways. If you have canned food that you would like to donate, send it in with your students, and the Student Council will collect and tally the cans for each grade level. The grade level that donates the most cans wins a prize!
If your students didn't mention the results of the Boggess Student Council Canned Food Drive, here they are:
Total Cans Collected: 4449
Third Grade wins!!
PISD works in conjunction with the Assistance Center of Collin County and Plano Santas to hold the canned food drives at each school and district facility, and has participated in this effort for over 18 years. This group of local Plano merchants, business men and women, civic and community leaders provide assistance to needy families each year during the holiday season. A month’s worth of food and children’s gifts are provided for more than 500 families each year!
