This year marks the closing of our 17th annual Season of Sharing campaign. We celebrated all of our efforts in working toward our school goal to collect a “ton” of food for Helping Harvest – formerly known as the Greater Berks Food Bank. Through the combined efforts of the students who brought in canned food; made and sold candy grams with hand-made greetings, held a Change Wars contest between students and teachers; and our CT community who contributed money for gift certificates, we were able to raise $2,048.59!
The top three classrooms in the Change Wars classroom competition are:
- 1st place – Mr. Werner’s 5th grade class with $130.61
- 2nd place – Mrs. Weidenhammer’s 5th grade class with $122.33
- 3rd place – Mrs. Hoffmann’s 5th grade class with $93.49
For every dollar you donated, the Greater Berks Food Bank is able to get $20 worth of food through its supply network to give to families in need. We wanted to make a difference in the lives of any families in Berks County, and we did!
Since Cornwall terrace started Season of Sharing in 2003. we have donated a combined 32,000 pounds – or more than – 16 tons of food. Can you believe that?
It took a lot of teamwork to make something like this happen. All that food will be put to good use to those in need, here in Berks County. So, we would like to take a moment to thank everyone who made today possible: students, teachers, parents, the Cornwall Terrace Student Council members, community members, and the Greater Berks Food Bank.
