The Lorena Oates Elementary food service staff collected over 100 baby food items for the Salvation Army. The food service staff spent the month of October collecting items which included baby cereal, juice, canned vegetables, snacks and finger foods. 

In September, the food service staff also collected and delivered all types of non-perishable items for the Salvation Army in a district-wide food drive.

Patti Hodge organized both drives.
