Canned Food Drive a Success!

The Helix Middle School student council, under the guidance of Sharilyn Newtson, organized a K-12 canned food drive to collect non-perishable items to help feed those less fortunate. 

In less than two weeks, nearly nine hundred pounds were collected and transported to the Athena Christian Church food pantry.  This pantry services individuals in need in Weston, Athena, Adams and Helix.  GREAT JOB!!!
