At Brookridge, there are currently 643 children enrolled, and 53% of these children are on free and reduced lunch. Over 70 of their families need help for Thanksgiving, and over 80 of their families need help for Christmas. The peanut butter and jelly Brighton will be bringing will be added to the groceries that the church is giving to the families.
As an incentive for students to donate, STUCO is having a contest. If the boys bring more jars, then Anna Lang must wear a banana costume during the lunch period. If the girls win, then Ryan Beard must face that fate instead. But this can ONLY happen if we get all 150 jars.
