Jantsch’s fifth hour class wins canned food drive competition

StuCo held its annual canned food drive the week of Nov. 16.

While StuCo was weary to set goals because of the economic climate, they were hoping to raise upward of 3,000 cans and $6,000. By the end of the week, they collected 6,415 cans and $5,869.93. While they were just short of reaching their money goal, they raised more than 2,000 more cans than last year.

European History AP teacher Beth Jantsch’s fifth-hour class collected the most overall cans and money. The class will recieve a pizza party as a prize.

“It’s one of the main things I like to do during the school year. Everything goes directly to the food-bank and people are getting a hot meal out of it.”

All the cans and money collected go to the Johnson County Christmas Bureau, which serves needy people of Johnson County.

“It’s great because it’s the people that we live with that we’re helping,” Dent said.
