2019 Spirit of Giving Food Drive

Spirit of Giving Food Drive

The Newton Student Council along with the Committee of the Village Churches invites you to participate in this year’s Spirit of Giving taking place December 2-13.  The Student Council will be collecting nonperishable items from the list below to help stock the pantry for the following year.  The pantry already has a large supply of canned vegetables and soup so those items are not in need this year. 

The Student Council wants to challenge each grade level to collect items.  Prizes will be awarded if the grade level meets their set goal.  Posters will be located in the hallway to show each grade where they stand with their goals. 

Monetary donations will be accepted as well.  This money will be used to buy meat, fresh vegetables and dairy items.  Checks can be made Newton Food Pantry.  If you have any questions, please contact Jane Jess at 676-2002 or email me at
