THE WOODLANDS, TX – The entire second grade class at Coulson Tough Elementary School collected and donated 1,882 pounds of non-perishable food items for the for Interfaith of The Woodlands’ Food Pantry. In April, the students continued “The Helping Hands and Hearts for Hundred’s Day Food Drive” which is a tradition at the school. The classroom that collected the most food will be rewarded with a silly string and popsicle party. “I am always so proud of our students and how they look forward to doing this for Interfaith each year. It’s a fun competition but more importantly, it teaches the children the importance of giving back and how they can make a difference” said Coulson Tough Principal Julie English.
“The amount of food the students collected is simply remarkable. They worked hard to help fill the Interfaith Food Pantry so that we in turn can help the less fortunate in our community,” said Dr. Ann Snyder, President and CEO of Interfaith of The Woodlands.
