Food Drive For Open Arms Mission


Emmons School in partnership with Emmons PTO held a food drive the week of October 17th with a culminating event day at Piggly Wiggly on Sunday, October 23rd. Many stakeholders of the Emmons community helped plan and execute the campaign. The PTO parents planned and participated on the Piggly Wiggly day and the 8th Grade House Leadership Student Team, led by Ms. Wickham, created signage and a video message to advertise for the drive. The students, staff, and parents helped pack up the food and deliver it to Open Arms Mission. Emmons collected 863 lbs. of food and over $1000 in donations to benefit the community! Thank you Antioch community for your support!
