Skyview Junior High students conducted a food drive the week before Thanksgiving and more than 5,000 pounds of food were collected, serving 40 families.

Each homeroom assembled a collection of food for a needy family in the community. The families received about 150 pounds of food each, including a turkey, pies, rolls and nonperishables.

This was the seventh year of the Skyview Junior High Holiday Food Drive that seeks to make giving personal by helping families in their own community.

The Eastlake Community Church is conducting a food drive in December and will be partnering with Skyview Junior High to distribute their Family Care Packages. Families are invited to pick up a Family Care Package on Dec. 17 at the school.
