Whitnall Middle School Food Drive Begins Monday

Whitnall Middle School Student Council will be hosting a food drive to benefit the Milwaukee Hunger Task Force. Efforts will help the Hunger Task Force re-stock their shelves after the holiday season. Last year’s drive at WMS brought in 6,000 pounds of food. Our goal is to attempt to reach 8,000 pounds this year.  It will be a tough challenge, but with everyone’s cooperation and generous donations, we can make it happen.

Each homebase class will earn points for donations brought in.  Each day will also have a bonus item worth more points (see list below).  The class with the highest average points per student will pick their prize. The prize choices are a pizza or ice cream party

Please consider making a donation during the WMS Food Drive and help out those in need.

  • Canned: vegetables, fruit, soup, meat, fish, beans, chickens, tuna, stews

  • Dry boxed food: cereal, pancake & bread mix, pasta, rice, Mac n Cheese, potato mixes, dinner mixes
