The 5th grade is in charge of organizing the food collection in November for local food banks. We collect boxes, decorate them, distribute them to all the classrooms, offer extras as needed, and collect, close, and organize them for pick-up before Thanksgiving.
The best size is about a box that was for a ream of paper. Anything approximately this size is good. This way, it isn't too big for the heavy items we collects, but isn't too small for the lighter items. I typically give 2 to each classroom, which means for Pre-K-8, we'd need 40 boxes!
Feel free to bring them up and drop them off before or after school or sending them in with your child is fine with me too. This week or next would be perfect. Thank you for your help!
