Landmark High School kicks off their annual food drive with a dance

The students of Landmark High School, in an effort to help out those in need, kicked off their annual canned food drive by holding a dance.  The food drive will go until December 17, 2010. The students brought three cans of food to pay for their entrance to the dance held on Thursday, October 28.  The student body believes that it is better to help those who are in need, because who knows when we might become one of those in need.

Some of the faculty members have pledged to do certain things if the students are able to fill the bins provided by Community Action Services and Foodbank of Utah County.  For example, Mark Bailey has pledged to shave his head, and there are several other teachers who have also pledged to do other things.

Ethan Wing, a senior and member of the Landmark Student Senate in charge of the food drive stated, “As a student in the senate, I feel a lot of people look up to me and others in leadership positions, so helping out people in our community shows the kids in our school that we can make a difference in someone’s life.  Many of us here at Landmark have had to get food from charity organizations, so I feel really strongly about the food drive.”

If you would like to donate to this cause you can bring you canned food or even hygiene supplies, including toothpaste, soap, and other packaged products to Landmark High School located at 612 South Main in Spanish Fork, or you can drop the items off directly at Community Action Services.  Please contact them at 801-373-8200 or check out their website at www.communityactionuc.org for more information.
