This year’s SCA Executive Board announced a grade level Thanksgiving canned food drive competition for the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore.

“We want to ensure that our community has a great Thanksgiving no matter the circumstances,” said SCA communications officer Chelsea Agyei. “We want to raise some friendly competition and school spirit by making the donation boxes sorted by grade level.”

SCA chose this organization because the community outreach committee already donates to United Way, who is affiliated with the foodbank. Drop offs will be held between 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays from Nov. 12 to 23 in front of the school’s library entrance. Even though school is back to fully virtual, students are encouraged to bring canned foods to the designated drop off boxes for each grade. 

“We strongly encourage those that drop off donations [ensure they] are symptom-free and follow CDC guidelines,” said Chelsea. “Just go up to the door and the security guards will let you in to drop off.”

The grade level with the most donations will win a shoutout on the SCA’s Instagram page.

“For more information on what to bring, head to,” said Chelsea.
