Goodness Gorilla Canned Food Drive

Pequea Families,

Our Goodness Gorilla Officers, Emily Flexman, Natalie Whiteside, Gabby Bitts, Ian Smith, Chad Mowbray, and Caleb Murungi, have been working hard on our first project for the year. We will be teaming up with the Lampeter-Strasburg YMCA for it’s 4th annual Food Drive to benefit local families.

How can you help?

The following items will be collected:

  • Canned Vegetables
  • Canned Gravy
  • Canned Stuffing
  • Canned Cranberry Sauce
  • Boxed Stuffing
  • Instant Mashed Potatoes

* Please note that only the items listed above are being collected by the L-S YMCA.

The students at Pequea Elementary School love to show their school pride through spirit days. We will have five spirit day options where Pequea students, families, and community members can place donated food items listed above under a category. Those categories are Crazy Hair/Hat Day, Twin Day, Mismatch Day, Decade Day, and Teachers Dress Like Kids/Kids Dress Like Teachers Day.

Items will be collected from Monday, November 12 through Friday, November 16. The category with the most items will be the winner of our next spirit day.

We need your help to collect as many cans as possible and use your donated food items to vote for your favorite spirit day!
