MORTON CAN DRIVE!
Our Student Council is sponsoring the annual can drive in partnership with God’s Pantry. Morton will be collecting cans from September 8th through October 22nd. Blue bins will be located throughout the school to place your donations. God’s pantry is asking for canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned soups, and peanut butter. No glass please! Students, make sure to bring your cans to your AL teacher first, before placing them in the bins as there will be contests for the AL who collects the most cans, as well as individual students who bring in the most cans. To donate online just go to: http://give.godspantry.org/kcfh and select MORTON from the drop down menu. This is a great opportunity to support those in need! See Mrs. W. Dixon or Mr. Kitchen if you have questions.
