Forest Heights Provides 3,100 Items to Food Pantry

A food drive at Forest Heights Elementary School collected more than 3,100 items for the Harrison School District’s food pantry, which provides emergency food assistance to students and their families.


The five-day drive concluded on Friday, November 8, and saw two classrooms donate more than 500 items each. Jenny Hodge’s first-grade class was tops with 527, while Julie Melton’s fourth-graders collected 510. Rounding out the top three was Patricia Billups’ second-grade students, who had 484.


Forest Heights would like to thank the Parent-Teacher Association volunteers who tallied the donations.


Food drives at Harrison campuses have generated over 4,700 items for the food pantry this school year. Located in the Clothing Closet at the district Administration Building, the pantry has items available on an as-needed basis for Harrison students after other community resources have been exhausted.
