NJHS hosts can food drive at DMS

National Junior Honor Society is hosting a can food drive through Oct. 15.

Sherry McGhghy works in her classroom Tuesday.

The cans are going to families who do not have enough currency to support their family. This food drive is a shared project between NJHS and Christians Concerned, a non-profit food pantry in Duncan.

Students who wish to bring cans for the families can bring canned meat (not including tuna), canned vegetables, peanut butter, canned soups, boxed meals, macaroni and cheese, rice, powdered milk, cooking oil, canned fruit, Ramen noodles and Vienna sausages.

The can food drive started on Sept. 15 and is set to end one month later. During this time, students can bring any non-perishable food items, which will be taken to Christians Concerned for distribution.

Sherry McGhghy, who is the NJHS sponsor, said that it is easy for some students to go to their pantry or cabinet to grab food whenever their hungry. But that’s not always the case.

Students who bring food to Duncan Middle School for the food drive can take those items to McGhghy’s class, Room 283.
