"Students are collecting food and monetary donations outside of local grocery stores," she said. "They're aiming to collect 60,000 pounds of food (and beat last year's record of 45,000 pounds)."
More than 3,800 items and $350 were collected in this year's food drive at Woodside High School, Ms. Smith reports. All will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank, she said.
"Woodside students remain active during the holidays in their ongoing community service activities, including initiatives to raise awareness of different forms of cancer and the effects of the war in Uganda," Ms. Smith said.
