MHS Canned Food Drive

Mountainburg High School Student Council conducted a holiday food drive from November 5-21. This became a competition between the classes to see which class could bring the most non-perishable food items. Over 5,000 food items were brought! The Senior Class of 2015 won the competition and were rewarded with a pizza party on Friday, November 22.  This event made it possible for several families in the community to receive a Thanksgiving meal plus additional items of food. From this food drive, meals will be provided to families for Christmas and then the remainder will be donated to a local church in Mountainburg to help families. The Toasty Tots Winter Clothing Collection Program partnered with Student Council and furnished the turkeys and the bread. MHS STUCO's adviser is Spring Stout and the Toasty Tots Winter Clothing Collection Program was developed and is sponsored by Mr. and Miss Mountainburg 2013 - Sienna West and Samuel Vanourny. The motto of the drive was "Bring a can, Fill the van!" And the van overflowed!
