Barrows Food Drive

Barrows Families – we need your help!

Barrows is ready to get involved in helping our community! The Student Council is running a school wide food drive November 4th- 8th.   The food drive will benefit the Reading Food Pantry, which is currently serving 95+ families in town. You can send in donations any time during that week. Each classroom will have their own donation box. Our school goal is to collect 500 items. All new, sealed items are welcome, but the list below contains items of particular need.  
  • Paper goods: toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex
  • Toiletries: Shampoo, soap, toothpaste, deodorant, shaving cream
  • Canned pasta (Spaghetti O’s, raviolis)
  • 100% Juice boxes
  • Raisins (small individual size boxes)
  • Granola bars
  • Pasta sauce
  • Canned vegetables (spinach, creamed corn, beets, potatoes, yams)
        ***Please do not send in expired items!

The people of Reading and the Barrows Student Council thank you for your generosity!!!
