Willow Springs to donate more than 1,000 food items

They may be young, but they understand the importance of providing a community service. As the first service project of the school year, Willow Springs Learning Center’s 4-year-old kindergartners will donate more than 1,000 food items to the Sussex Food Pantry.

The food collection service project ran Sept. 11-28. Students worked to reach their goal of 1,000 food items so that they could take their principal up on her promise of spending a day working on the roof if they met the challenge. The students and staff met and surpassed the challenge which means that Principal Margee Tackes, Ed.D., will greet them from the school roof Oct. 3 when they arrive to school at 8:45 a.m. for the morning session and 12:45 p.m. for the afternoon session.

Willow Springs is located at W220 N6660 Town Line Road, Menomonee Falls.
