Instead of letting dusty cans go to waste, donate them to Howell High School’s canned food drive. Last year, HHS collected a total of 13,000 cans and this year they plan to achieve their goal of 24,000.

Starting Nov. 1 through Nov. 24, students attending HHS at the 10-12 building will have boxes in each of their classrooms to donate any cans. To encourage students to donate, there is a competition. Whichever first hour class that collects the most cans will receive a prize. First place winners will receive a Buffalo Wild Wings party during fifth hour. The teacher will also receive a vacation day and HHS principal, Mr. Jason Schrock will be teaching that class for the day. Second place winners will get Jimmy John’s and third place winners will receive donuts.

“There’s a lot of families in Howell that people don’t realize that actually need our help,” senior member of leadership Miyah Seckinger says.

All cans donated will go to Gleaner’s Community Food Bank to help families in the Livingston County area who are in need of help. Not only can students donate, but so can the public. To donate cans, go to the LOC Federal Credit Union located at 3020 E. Grand River Ave.
