The Green Mountain Union High School Booster Club is teaming up with the GM student government to help promote Project Feed the Thousands.
During November and December students are encouraged to bring in non-perishable food items to help support their local food shelves.
The Booster Club is providing the classes with a monetary incentive for the top three classes who collect the most items.
This year the Booster Club wants to encourage more student participation through awarding individual incentives as well.
Anyone who brings in a non-perishable food item on any given day of the week will have their name entered into a drawing.
Each Friday, one name will be drawn from those who participated for the week, with that person given the opportunity to pick one of six envelopes which contains a monetary prize.
Each student who bring in items each day of the week, gets their name entered each time for that weeks' drawing.
The hope is to motivate and encourage all students to participate and become involved.
It will indeed be interesting to see just how much food the students at Green Mountain Union High School will collect.
While, the GM Booster Club could just as easily have gone out and purchased food and made a donation on thier own, it is important they show the students how crucial it is to support their local community, and to provide them with the potential to gain reward from such a generous act.
