Thomaston, Cushing schools collect food for local pantries
Thomaston — Students at Lura Libby Elementary formed a line through the school Nov. 20 to transfer donated items — totaling 207 pounds — to the Thomaston Interfaith Food Pantry.
The effort is part of a "it's a small world" project theme with an emphasis on community awareness, said educator and project coordinator Patricia Mellor.
Students also learn about geography and fun facts of the United States each week.
The Cushing Community School also participated in the event, with their goods benefiting the Cushing/Friendship Food Pantry.
