Canned Food Drive

The WCS Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive will start this week, Monday, November 4th and run through Friday, November 8th. All donations from this food drive will benefit First Baptist Woodway’s food pantry (Given in Jesus Name). This FWBC ministry provides food to families throughout our community.

The Thanksgiving Food Drive provides us the perfect opportunity to teach students about giving to the less fortunate and creates a fun competition for them, too.

Prizes will be awarded school wide –

2500 points – movie and popcorn

5000 points – movie, popcorn and a drink

10,000 points – movie, popcorn, drink and candy

PLEASE, PLEASE NO EXPIRED ITEMS!  The middle school students work very hard to get the items ready to move to the pantry, and it makes more work for them to have to throw these items away. The pantry is not allowed to give expired items. 

Below are the items acceptable to be collected for the food drive and the point value of each:

Canned meat (1 pt)

Canned Vegetables (1 pt)

Canned fruit (1 pt)

Boxed Goods such as “Family Size Macaroni & Cheese, Chicken Helper & Tuna Helper (3 pts)

Chili (2 Pt)

Kitchen Essentials such as 5 lb Bags of Sugar, Flour & Cornmeal (3 pts)

Toiletries such as Soap (1 pt per bar), Toilet Paper (1 pt per 2 rolls), Toothpaste (3 pts for large size), Toothbrushes (1 pt), Deodorant (3 pts), Shampoo (3 pts), Paper Towels (1 pt per roll)

$20 gift cards to Walmart or HEB (20 pts.)

As always, thank you for your continued dedication and support of Woodway Christian School.

Let’s have the biggest year yet!
