Band and Parents: Scarlet Knights Marching Band Food Drive

Scarlet Knights Marching Band Food Drive

Band Parents and Members,

During the summer months, food pantries in our area don’t get enough donations to meet the needs of the communities they serve. Let’s help them out with a food drive during Band Camp.

To make it even more fun, we are making it a contest! Donations will be collected by section and the section with the most number of donation items per person will be the winner. The winning section will be announced on Saturday, August 19th at the Band Camp BBQ. Prizes to be determined (I promise the prize will be cool!).

Let’s set an overall band goal to collect over 750lbs of food for Neighbors In Need food pantry in Lawrence!

Below is a list of suggested items to donate. I will have boxes marked with the different sections to collect your donations. Let’s show how much the Scarlet Knights can give back to the community!

Band Member,
Anna McGrath
