Students at Evergreen Academy Elementary School in Bothell collected 486 pounds of non-perishable food items to donate to the Maltby Food Bank as part of the school’s annual Apple Cup food drive.
With the major rivalry between the Washington Huskies and the Washington State Cougars, students and parents showed their support for their favorite team by donating to separate boxes labeled with each team’s name.
Through this event, students and parents engaged in a friendly competition while also helping local families. At the close of the drive, the total donations between both teams were too close to call and a tie was called between the Huskies and Cougars.
The food contributions will help provide meals and groceries to members of the community in need.
