The student members assisted in collecting, boxing, carrying and loading the nearly 1000 items to donate to the Garfield Memorial Church Food Pantries in Pepper Pike and South Euclid.

The Orange Elementary and Middle School PTA donated gift cards for each member of the winning Pride homeroom. Mrs. Ursula Apaestegui's sixth-grade Pride donated the most items at 164. Mr. Jacob Eddingfield's seventh-grade Pride was close behind with 163 items. In third place with 88 items was Mr. Dave Tirpak's and Ms. Betsey Lee's sixth-grade Pride. The Builders Club is a community service group sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Lander Circle. The food the students gathered and donated will feed dozens of families in need throughout our community during the holidays.
