Hunger is No Game at Forester

Hunger is no Game! Forester Elementary School donated just over $32,000 in food and money to the San Antonio Food Bank this December! Representatives from the Food Bank, WOAI, and Security Service Credit Union joined us at our December Forester Frenzy to accept our check and to award Forester Dragons for being the elementary school with the largest donation in the city. Student Council members asked Forester Dragons to bring both money and food items. Each donated dollar allows the food bank to provide seven meals to people in need. STUCO members created incentives such as pizza parties and students being allowed to wear pajamas to school if they brought a donation that kept everyone motivated. Advertising, collection and planning was all done by students. Our Student Council became very committed to the cause of hunger in our city after a field trip to the food bank. Student Council members came back from this field trip inspired to make a big difference, and they certainly did!
