100 days = 2,630 donations
Loveland Primary School (LPS) students reached a milestone Wednesday, Feb. 12, celebrating 100 days of school; the campus used the event to give back to the Loveland community.
“The goal was for every classroom to bring in 100 cans before the 100th day of school,” said Kevin Fancher, LPS principal. “The challenge started in January and ended on the 100th day of class with our school donating 2,630 cans to the Loveland, LIFE Pantry.”
Fancher said the total equates to a little more than 125 cans per room or nearly five cans per student.
“It was a huge success!” said Patsy Schlesselman, LPS second-grade teacher.
Schlesselman began the 100th Day of School Canned Food Drive a few years ago at LPS. This year the goal was to donate 2,100 cans.
“I’m thrilled we were able to exceed the goal,” said Schlesselman. “Our students were excited to participate, and all of the donations will help families in need right here in Loveland.”
