HPISD students did their part to make a difference this holiday season!

At NTFB, one of our favorite things about the holiday season is the many students and youth who join us in the fight against hunger during this time of year. From donating their birthday earnings to NTFB, to taking time to volunteer in our warehouse, so many youth in North Texas are doing their part to help those in need in their community during this season and we love it!

For the past several years, two communities in our service area have taken our mission district-wide; By rallying students in several schools within their district, both Highland Park ISD and Coppell ISD have been able to make an even bigger impact for hungry children, families and seniors during this critical time of the year and beyond! We are so grateful for the school districts’ commitment to not only fighting hunger in the near term, but by teaching students about this important issue, helping us work towards a hunger-free community in our future!

Their results this holiday season are outstanding:

Highland Park ISD Scots 4 Turkeys Drive

Hyer Elementary, Bradfield Elementary, Highland Park Middle School, McCulloch Intermediate School and Highland Park High School worked together to collect more than 1,500 pounds of shelf-stable trimmings to pair with Thanksgiving dinners for the needy, and raised an additional $4,235 in monetary donations which allowed for the purchase of 211 turkeys!

Read what one of the great teachers who helps to lead their efforts has to say about why they participate in the drive:

“I think it is important for us to share and to help others who need our support.  I hope all the families who do not have food will be able to feed their families over the holidays.”

-Margaret Henderson, McCulloch Intermediate School, 6th Grade

Coppell ISD Family Feast Drive 

All 16 schools in Coppell ISD came together to collect nearly 12,400 pounds of shelf-stable food and $13,708 in online donations! In total, that will provide access to 51,454 meals this holiday season. We are in awe of their hard work to get everyone in their community involved in putting food on the table for families in need!

 

 

We can’t fully express just how appreciative we are of Highland Park ISD and Coppell ISD for all they are doing to help us fight hunger in North Texas now and in the future!
