In order to help families in need, FCCLA will hold a can drive from Monday to Dec. 15.

“There are families in need especially during the holiday season, that need food and we wanted to be able to provide that for them,” FCCLA adviser Brittney Bauer said.

FCCLA has held the can drive annually for over eight years.

This year, FCCLA will donate the cans to the Neighborhood Food Pantries in West Chicago.

Students can drop off the cans in commons or in Bauer’s room 107.

Any type of canned food can be donated as well as any boxed item.

FCCLA is also holding a raffle with the can drive. One winner from each grade level will be picked.

“We are giving gift cards (to each winner). They can enter the raffle as many times as they enter cans,” Bauer said.

Students who donate five or more cans are given a gym make up, 10 or more cans a pass out of a detention, and depending on teachers, students may receive extra credit.

“For P.E this year, they can only do one make up, not twice,” Bauer said.

According to Bauer, students should donate regardless of the benefits given to them for participating.

“They are helping the local community members,” Bauer said.
