The Dell Rapids school district held their annual holiday donation drive for local food pantries December 6th through December 10th. As part of the drive, the Dell Rapids Elementary School had a goal of collecting at least 1,000 items. The school not only met their goal, but far exceeded it with 1,349 items collected!
To celebrate reaching the goal, a student from each of the elementary classrooms was randomly selected to “pie” a staff member during a celebration on Tuesday, December 14th. The most important part of the celebration was recognizing the generosity shown by all the students and their families.
The district as a whole collected over 1,750 items for local food pantries during the donation drive.
