CHS Students Collecting Food and more for Neighbors in Need

CLEARFIELD – English teachers at the Clearfield High School are urging students to help their less fortunate neighbors this holiday season, and are inviting the public to pitch in, too.

The English Department is collecting donations of new pajamas, story books, and non-perishable food items, which will be distributed by local agencies to those in need.

Donations of non-perishable food will be given to the Salvation Army of Clearfield, which is currently experiencing a shortage of food. The donations will provide a holiday meal and assistance through the winter to local families in need.

Specific food items requested include: boxes of instant mashed potatoes, boxed stuffing mix, canned vegetables, gravy, pumpkin pie filling, and pudding mixes. Also needed are canned soups and meats, peanut butter, tuna, spaghetti and sauce and cereal.

Donations of new pajamas and story books will be a warm and welcome gift to local families who need them most. Pajamas and story books must be new; no worn or used items, please. Pajamas may be any sizes, infant through adult. Story books should be for young or elementary-age children. These donations will be distributed through local service agencies.

Join the CHS English Department in helping others this holiday season. The public may drop off donations at the Clearfield High School office before Dec. 14. For more information, contact the CHS English Department at 765-2401.
