Kindergarten Food Drive

Sometimes what we learn in school opens our eyes to the world outside of class.
And as we see in our Never Stop Learning, you're never too young to reach out to the community.
Kindergarteners at Carolina Day School are counting down to the 100th day of school next Tuesday.
Their community service project is to collect cans for MANNA Food Bank.
Teacher Ann Jennings says they're learning from every single donation.
As the food comes in, the classes add up the cans.
Ann Jennings, kindergarten teacher, "it's good learning for the children with their math and their number work. And it's also a really good thing for them to be reminded as we track the cans. To be reminded about what we're doing for the community and the people who do need food."
All three kindergarten classes are collecting cans. Along with their efforts, Carolina Day is competing with Christ School to see which campus can bring in the most donations for MANNA Food Bank.
Last year, mountain schools collected 33,000 pounds for the cause.
