Centreville Schools stock food pantry

Centreville Public Schools and a number of its volunteers were successful in a recent attempt to “Stuff the Bus.”

High school principal Chad Brady said the effort was co-organized by the high school’s Future Farmers of America students and its National Honor Society members.

Brady and Centreville Elementary Principal Mark VanderKlok joined students and parent volunteers during the Dec. 8 collection.

The effort netted 1,200 pounds of food. Combined with donations Centreville students gathered throughout the week, the district collected an estimated 3,000 pounds of food. All food was turned over to Centreville United Methodist Church for distribution throughout the area.

Brady noted that enough food was collected to stock the local food pantry for at least four months.

He offered his thanks to Yoder’s and Dollar General for their part in the success of the event. The two businesses have already agreed to let the school district use the same space next year for the second annual collection.
