Students at Northend Elementary School collected food donations during the month of November, 2017 to benefit people in need in the community. The nearly 1,000 items of non-perishable food were collected for the work of the Osgood Avenue Food Pantry.
The food drive was organized by teachers Jennifer Welch and Dawn Mitchell.
The Consolidated School District of New Britain announced the successful charitable collection by the Northend community and the results of a little friendly competition among classes at the school.
