Bridge City Intermediate School wanted to celebrate this season of giving by hosting a canned food drive for Orange Christian Services and the Ministerial Alliance. The Social Studies department sponsored the drive and it was organized by staff members Gena Guyote and Pam Vaught.

This is an annual event for the campus and the students are proud to share our amazing total donation with you this year. The students and staff have been dedicated to sharing a message of good character and kindness and feel that this is one way they can help our neighbors and the community enjoy this special season.
