Students, families, and Hempfield School District staff members responded to the call to help those in need within the Hempfield community. Our 7th Annual Districtwide Food Drive was another great success with more than 6,191 pounds of food donated to the Hempfield Area Food Pantry!
Each month, more than 160 households utilize the Hempfield Area Food Pantry, many visiting on a weekly basis. In addition, the pantry operates solely by volunteers who contribute about 625 hours each month to sort, stock, and distribute food items.
Thank you to all who donated non-perishable food items during this drive! Special thanks to J.K. Mechanical for providing service vehicles to collect and transport donations from our schools to the pantry. Also, thank you to Market Street Sports Group and the Hempfield Foundation for their support and assistance in helping us to collect food donations on Friday, March 3.
