Crossfield Gives Back: Food donations needed

Crossfield and the PTO Board are excited to announce that on Thursday, February 15th, all students will be participating in Crossfield Gives Back.” This will be a day of giving where our students will prepare, sort and pack 500 food packs containing weekend snacks and meals for food insecure students across Fairfax County. These packs will be distributed by Food for Others.

Over the next few weeks, our 6th graders will be sharing information on food insecurity through poster campaigns and on the WCES morning news. Teachers will also be discussing the issue with students at morning meetings. Please ask your students about those discussions and what their class is doing to give back.

We are asking for your help in providing the foods for these packs (apple sauces, granola bars, etc). You can sign up to donate food and to help our students with their day of giving here:

Please share this signup genius for food donations far and wide (neighborhoods, churches, local friends and family). This is an ambitious effort, but we know we can do it. Let’s show the love, Crossfield! Together, we can help fellow students in our community.
