Food For Families At Wellington El

Wellington Elementary School recently participated in NewsChannel 5’s Bill Brooks Food for Families Drive. The students brought donations in of nonperishable food items such as canned meats, soups, canned vegetables and more. There are thousands of people in South Florida where hunger is a daily reality. The goal of the program is to make this holiday season plentiful for all. Wellington Elementary School collected more than 800 canned goods. First grade teacher Julie Roca and fifth grade teacher Kelly Jo Mills oversaw the program and helped make it a great success. Shown here is Roca’s first grade class with some of the donations.
