VSW Holds Three-Week Drive to Benefit Eddie Davis Center

Valley Southwoods

Valley Southwoods students help load boxes of food donated to the Eddie Davis Center through a three-week Student Government drive.

Students at Valley Southwoods Freshman High School are feeling the spirit of giving. The Student Government just completed a three-week drive to benefit the Eddie Davis Center that had a hint of a competitive spirit.

The first week, students at the school were asked to bring canned goods to their fifth period class. The second week, students brought in dry goods and last week students donated paper products and toiletry items. The teacher who averaged the most donations each week won a pizza party for their students.

A chart outside the principal's office keeps track of the weekly donations per class. The class with the highest average donations for the week wins a pizza party.

Jordan Meyer’s class won the pizza party for the first week with an average of 5.8 cans per student. The school gathered 721 total cans of food that week. They also collected 1,560 dry goods with Taylor McClure’s class leading the way with 28.6 items per student.

“It is great to see people who truly care step up on this project,” said Student Government advisor Chris Larson. Zac Sinram also advises the group.

A representative from the Eddie Davis Center came to Valley Southwoods Dec. 19 and collected a truck load of food items from Student Government members. They will pick up the paper and toiletry items Mon., Dec. 19.

Thank you to the VSW Student Government for hosting a great and successful project for the Eddie Davis Center!
