Food Bowl 2014
Once again it is that time of year to collect money and food to benefit our local food bank. For those who don't know, we hold a competition between Elma High School and Montesano High School to see who can raise the most money and collect the largest amount of food for their respective food banks. The winning school then gets bragging rights with their name on a trophy.
However, the real winners are the food banks. It is always heartwarming to see how much our small community donates to such a worthy cause. This year, students will be collecting at the stoplight, during the Festival of Lights parade, and during numerous fundraisers. The paper bag drive will begin Sunday, November 30 and is an easy way for the community to donate food. Without leaving the comfort of your home, bags will be picked up Sunday, December 7.
Some of the fundraisers we'll have this year include, an Old Time Radio Show on Saturday, December 6, Boys Buff Volleyball Tournament, McTakeover, Talent Show, Dessert Bingo and a Silent Auction in the High School Office, with lots of great items for the public to bid on.
You can also donate online through our "Bulldog Online Store" beginning December 5. Just go to the search box on this website and type in Bulldog Online Store. Select Jr/Sr High School Online Store and then select "Click here to go to our store. Once you enter the Online Store, select Fundraisers, select Food Bowl (should be the first button) and choose an amount to donate. No amount is too small.
Food Bowl begins Friday, December 5, and the weigh-in is on Tuesday, December 16 at 3:30 pm. Don't forget, your donations are tax deductible.
Again, thank you for supporting Montesano High School in our mission to raise food and money to fill our food bank. Your support is truly appreciated.
