The annual Passing of the Food event took place Nov. 20 at Lura Libby School. Students and staff collected nonperishable goods for the Thomaston Food Pantry and symbolically passed the items through the hallways.

The items were packed in boxes and readied to be delivered to the pantry. This service project supports Lura Libby’s theme of Kindness Counts. Students expressed gratitude to be able to assist members of the community at this time of year.

The Thomaston Food Pantry is located in Watts Hall on Main Street. It is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 to 11 a.m.. It is closed on holidays and on school storm days. Donations of any amount are appreciated throughout the year.
