5th Grade Community Project Information
5th graders will be leading our "Kindness Counts" Community Service Project. Our canned food drive will run from October 8 - November 2. We need to encourage all Wilbur students to contribute to the drive. All food will be donated to the Sunday Breakfast Mission to help them provide meals to local homeless people and/or help them fill their Thanksgiving Dinner boxes for families in need. Canned vegetables and fruits are really needed. Students need to give their canned goods to their homeroom teachers, because there is a contest between the halls. The hall that collects the most cans will earn a special "Fun Afternoon" planned and led by fifth graders.
