It's not only the season of giving, but for helping those who need help. Students at Shawnee Elementary in Xenia took on that challenge. Over a total period of eight themed days such as 'Crazy Hair Day' and 'Pajama Day' interspersed with two snow days, the students collected 3,200 canned goods and non-perishable items to be given to the Fish Pantry on Ledbetter Road. Additionally, staff donated daily toward the purchase of toiletry items for the project. The joint effort included parents, organized by the PTO, who volunteered to take the collected items to the Fish Pantry. Above, the crew prepares for the last load's final send off. Submitted photo.
