Feed the Need project a success in November, holiday help still sought
Special to the Tribune

In November, Coyote Springs Elementary School students held a "Feed the Need" food drive to provide Thanksgiving dinners for CSES families in need.

Colby Poole, fifth-grader and student council member, said students wanted to help take care of families in need who might not have enough food over the Thanksgiving holiday. The student council ran a food drive, and students brought in nearly 3,000 food items to feed 20 families of CSES students with turkey, dressing and all of the fixings, plus some additional items to stock their pantry. Any extra items went to the Humboldt Unified School District Food and Nutrition program that provides needy students in the district with backpacks of food to take home for the weekend.

The student council launched the Feed the Need food drive as one of their service projects for the year.

Feed the Need II, a second food drive, continues through Dec. 19, to help families during the winter break. The school is accepting donations of non-perishable food items as well as turkeys. Please call the Coyote Springs office at 928-759-4300 for information about donations to this program.
