ELKINS — Jennings Randolph Elementary Student Council held a school-wide 12 Days of Christmas Food Drive.

Each day had a different theme such as Canned Vegetables, Breakfast Items and Shampoo & Conditioner. With the items collected from the students, parents and staff of Jennings Randolph, the Student Council members were able to fill five Blessing Boxes around Elkins and donated to Catholic Charities, the First United Methodist Church Backpack Program and the Homeless Shelter.

The group was also able to supplement school-based backpacks with extra items for the extended holiday break. This was a valuable community service project for the Student Council while helping all students learn the value of giving and helping others.
