Winn Brook PTA Food Drive
February 7-11

Please bring in non-perishable food donations any day next  week! Thank you for your generosity! 

Winn Brook PTA's annual Food Drive will be February 7th - 11th . This is a wonderful chance for our kids to be part of helping those in need in our Belmont community. There will be boxes for donations by each classroom.
Every year students set a goal of reaching 100 donations per class to celebrate the 100th day of school. Many classes connect the Food Drive to math by counting and graphing the  donations.  

The following food items are particularly needed:
