There's no place like Holmes for holiday giving

Holmes ES Participating in the Salvation Army’s annual Holiday Food Drive has been a tradition at Holmes Elementary School for many years. The drive is sponsored and coordinated by the school’s Student Council. Last year’s food drive resulted in the donation of more than 2,260 food items, which equaled 4.5 items per student.

Aliex Kofoed from the Salvation Army's Citadel Corps recently stopped by the Clairemont neighborhood school to present a first place trophy for donating the most food items in last year's food drive. (Cadman Elementary School came in second.) 

Pictured with Aliex (center) are student council members Jack O'Donnell, Aiden Behr and Morgan Hancock, along with 4/5 teacher, Brandie Woodfill.

The Student Council is already prepping for this year's Holiday Food Drive.
