Willow Springs families contribute to food pantry

Willow Spring Learning Center students and their families contributed generously to the Sussex Food Pantry this holiday season. They participated in a service project, “Making Wishes Come True,” that resulted in more than 250 gifts that will be distributed through the Sussex Food Pantry to local families.

The Sussex Food Pantry also will receive a check from the Evergreen Acres Tree Farm on Town Line Rd. The money comes from $1 donations that Willow Springs kindergartners contributed for a field trip to the tree farm. Owners of the tree farm, the Doperalski family, have donated the field trip contributions to the Sussex Food Pantry for the past several years.

Willow Springs Learning Center, W220 N6660 Town Line Rd., Menomonee Falls, serves more than 285 students who participate in the district’s optional half-day kindergarten program.
