Hauser 2008 Food Drive

Did you know Hauser Junior High is the largest food collector for the Salvation Army in the state of Illinois? Over the past 38 years, Hauser has collected nearly 1.4 million cans and boxes of food. You can support this time-honored tradition by donating food or money to the school’s 39th Annual Food Drive, between now and the morning of Wednesday, Dec. 16.

In this year of tremendous need, Hauser aims to collect an all-time high of 80,000 food items, to surpass last year’s 70,000 cans and boxes. Students who collect either 200 items or $50 will be able to help set up the display in the Hauser Auditorium – a truly awesome site to behold – on Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Everyone is invited to support Hauser’s Annual Food Drive. You can donate food items or make monetary donations (checks payable to Riverside Public Schools) to Hauser students or directly to the school.

For more information, contact one of the Hauser staff organizing the Food Drive: Renee Blondin, blondinr@district96.org; Joy Brabec, brabecj@district96.org; or Katie Kempe, kempek@district96.org.
