Livingston Junior High held a food drive during the month of November and collected 1,460 items that will be donated to the MannaFest Food Pantry in Livingston.
The food drive was sponsored by the National Junior Honor Society who built a structure with 600 cans to participate in the MannaFest CANstruction event. The theme of the structure is, “NJHS, we light the way to end hunger in Polk County!”. The symbol of NJHS is a torch that is to be used to help lead the way for others to participate in community service. So the NJHS members used their motto in the CANstructure, which is a lighthouse guiding “lighting the way” for the Lions (design of the paw print within the cans) to help and give to those in Polk County. On December 2nd, we learned that our NJHS won 1st place in the Conveyance of Polk County for the contest.
