Students, families, and Hempfield School District staff members responded to the call to help those in need within the Hempfield community. Our 9th Annual District-Wide Food Drive was another great success with 5,587 pounds of food donated to the Hempfield Area Food Pantry!
Each month, more than 187 households utilize the Hempfield Area Food Pantry, many visiting on a weekly basis. In addition, the pantry operates solely by volunteers from from over ten churches in the Hempfield area give of their time and talents for the successful operation of the food pantry.
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 for their support and assistance in helping us to collect food donations on Friday, March 1.
