Student Council needs your help with our “Give from the Heart” food drive for the Northern Illinois Food Bank. Are you ready to give from the heart?  Student Council hopes you are! Our goal this year is to donate 1,000 pounds of non-perishable food.  If each student and staff could donate 2 items we could reach our goal. PLEASE bring in as many cans, boxes, or bags of nonperishable food items as possible. We will be collecting starting today through the 16th. Please bring food items to your team leader and put them in the designated boxes. Come on Thompson, give from the heart!
