Templeton Middle School Student Council collected 2,245 food items in January to benefit Sussex Outreach Services (SOS) Food Pantry.
Due to a slow start to the food drive, Student Council members came up with a marketing tactic to encourage student participation. They advertised “Three’s a Charm Day.” For every three food items a student donated they received a Charms pop. Templeton exceeded its goal by more than 200 items.
The Student Council Executive Board extended special thanks to the custodial staff for transporting more than 1,500 pounds of food to SOS.
Templeton Middle School is located at N59 W22490 Silver Spring Dr., Sussex.
