Holiday Food Drive
Once again it’s for the Plano Santas’ Holiday Food Drive! The district works in conjunction with the Assistance Center of Collin County and Plano Santas to hold the canned food drives at each school and district facility, and has participated in this effort for over 21 years. This group of local Plano merchants, business men and women, civic and community leaders provide assistance to needy families each year during the holiday season.
A month’s worth of food and children’s gifts are provided for more than 500 families each year! Last year Plano Santas collected 93,186 cans & the donations fed about 564 people for 30 days! Help Murphy Middle School donate over 7,500 food items towards this worthy cause. The drive begins on Monday, Nov. 11 and will run through Friday, Nov. 22. All donations need to be dropped off before school in the rotunda, just outside of the cafeteria. The students of the Social Studies teacher whose classes bring in the most items will receive a snack party, provided by the Student Council.
