The East Coventry Lion Cubs Held a Thanksgiving Food Drive Food Drive "In keeping with our school-wide theme of “helping others” our school has decided to encourage families to participate in a holiday food drive. The food drive will begin Wednesday, November 8th and continue through Friday, November 17th. Our donations will become part of the Coventry Lions Club food baskets which are distributed to disadvantaged families in the Owen J. Roberts area.

The Coventry Lions Club currently obtains turkeys, fresh fruits and vegetables and other perishable items through the GIANT Food Market. To help in creating a nutritious and holiday themed menu, our school will be collecting the canned and dry food items listed below. Our school’s Lion Cubs service club will be joining in the collection of food items as well as sorting the items into boxes to get them ready for the Coventry Lions Club members who will organize the food items to be ready for distribution.

Although there is no obligation to participate, we hope that every family can donate at least one item. Please feel free to send your donation to school with your child.

To help create a well balanced Holiday Meal we are requesting specific food items, although any and all donations will be gratefully accepted.

Here are the items we are collecting

Ø Canned corn

Ø Canned string beans

Ø Canned mixed fruit

Ø Canned cranberry sauce

Ø Canned Yams

Ø Stove Top stuffing mix – turkey flavored

Ø Turkey gravy – jar or mix

Ø Andes mints (or similar candies)

We are hoping to make this year one of service to others and providing help to those less fortunate families in our community.

The Lion Cubs successfully collected over 125 food items.
