JROTC Cadets Collect 5.5 Tons of Food

Junior ROTC Food Drive
JROTC students at Scripps Ranch High collected over 1 ton of food for local charities, churches and food banks.
Each year, San Diego Unified School District's JROTC cadets rally to support San Diegans by collecting food during the holiday season. This year was no exception as 13 JROTC programs conducted the annual JROTC Holiday Food Drive.
Together with friends, families, school faculty and students, the cadets collected an amazing 10,960 pounds (almost 5.5 tons). Donations of canned and dried goods went to various local charities, churches and food banks to be distributed to families just before the holidays.
A Community Service Streamer, special recognition given to the school that donates the largest amount per student, will be presented to Scripps Ranch High for collecting 2,120 pounds (over 1 ton). San Diego High placed second and Lincoln High placed third. 
Thank you to all cadets for their donations to this worthy event.
