During this Thanksgiving season, members of the Maurice W. Downing Primary School Student Council sponsored a food drive to benefit local families for the holiday. Students and teachers were asked to donate seasonal food items in order to create baskets that would enable families to truly celebrate a happy Thanksgiving. In addition to the donated food, each family received a gift certificate to a local food store in order to purchase a turkey. Pictured are members of the student council with school social worker Jamie Carter-Jorif, who helped coordinate the drive. Student council adviser Marguerite Robles also assisted with the drive. In total, 20 baskets were delivered to families prior to Thanksgiving.
