Student Council members Alyssa Johnson, Cameron Winters, Tanner Viren, Michael Merrick, and Anthony Woods collect food from classrooms to transport to the River Bend Food Bank.

UTHS’s contribution of 31,939 pounds of cans helped the Student Hunger Drive collect enough food to make 568,317 meals for those who need assistance in the Quad City area.

Here at United Township Mr. Scott King continued his reign as the king of collection and Mrs. Tina Dunker was the queen as their classes brought in the most cans of any classes. Several students were awarded t-shirts for being heavy-weight champions (100 cans in a single day), but one champion ruled them all when Seth Sellers won the drawing for a pair of AirPods.

The student council delivered the cans to the River Bend Food bank this past Thursday where food was weighed and winners of the various divisions were named from the 17 area high schools that participated. Although Pleasant Valley may have won the competition for large schools, the real winners are the recipients of the food, who will now have needed meals due to the generosity and efforts of local students.
