This November, St. Francis de Sales Confirmation Class students collected donations for the Lake Geneva Food Pantry at Wal-Mart and Piggly Wiggly. In only two hours, these young people were able to collect over 800 pounds of generous gifts of nonperishable food items and personal hygiene products as well. What a phenomenal contribution to our community and a tremendous example of goodwill!
On Monday, November 14, 2022 students and staff from Lake Geneva Middle School dropped off 2,500 pounds of collected donations to the Lake Geneva Food Pantry. This collection was truly a group effort: help came from staff, administration, parents from PTO, SOUL Club members, and Freedom Alliance members for the packing and transporting to the Pantry. What wonderful community support!
Today Lake Geneva Montessori School pupils (along with teachers!), literally created a donation parade from the school to the Lake Geneva Food Pantry, with each child toting a handful of varied contributions to the Pantry. In small groups, the children proudly carried each donation to a Pantry cart and observed the offerings provided to the clients. Each student was able to ask questions, contribute, and see the positive effects of their actions in a tangible way. What a positive reflection on our community!
Traver School 2022 Donation
On Wednesday, students and staff from Traver School dropped off over 1,500 items to the Lake Geneva Food Pantry. Students started to collect nonperishables as a school soup drive for National Soup Month and transformed it into a major food drive for the Pantry. Pictured are students with some of their donations.
Students and teachers from the Lake Geneva Middle School S.O.U.L. (Service and Outreach Uniting Leaders) Program dropped off the fruits of their labors. The students, along with advisor Jennifer Kinney, collected over 1,000 pounds of foodstuffs in a five-day period. Amazing! Seeing the goodwill and selflessness of our local students was truly heartwarming for our volunteers and clients. We are grateful.
All of these items were collected at the Lake Geneva Fire Department and then added to the Lake Geneva Middle School donation. If you see someone from the Fire Department, please thank them for helping to fill up our shelves!
Thank you to the Lake Geneva Middle School for your AMAZING donation!
