Local students donate goods to the needy
Special to The Herald
The Yazoo City Alternative Learning Center, in conjunction with McCoy and Webster Elementary Schools, joined together in having a canned food drive Oct. 10-Nov. 17.
The theme of the drive was “A Season of Giving.” The schools combined to give over 2,500 non perishable food items, 2,548 plastic plates, 900 plastic cups, 1,150 napkins, and over 2,850 eating utensils.
The schools are asking the public to assist them with their annual Teddy Bear Drive. The drive began Dec. 5 and will end on Dec. 14, benefiting the Department of Human Services’ Foster Children. Anyone wishing to donate a new teddy bear can drop the bear off at the Alternative School, Webster or McCoy Elementary Schools.
Please call Principal John Holmes at 662-746-0985 for more information.
Lastly, the Alternative Learning Center will have its annual Christmas Program on Dec. 14 at 10 a.m. in the Woolfolk Cafetorium.
The public is invited to attend. The theme is “Christmas in Many Lands.”
