HELP STAMP OUT HUNGER

Mrs. Lua, Z’s mom, is involved with the West Valley Food Pantry.  She is hoping that students from Room 26 will be able to help out with this weekend’s huge food drive that takes place all over the United States.   Post Office workers collect food on their route and then the food needs to get to the Pantry. 

The National Association of Letter Carriers' Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is a national effort that collects food to help fight hunger in America. Expectations are that the West Valley Food Pantry will receive over 42,000 pounds of food from this event that will help feed the hungry for months.

We are looking for volunteers on Saturday, May 13.  Please let me know if you will be able to assist so I can manage the shifts.  Friends, family and co-workers are always welcome, and it's a great opportunity for kids to help out.  And you will find the time very fulfilling. Helping others feels great! 

We will need volunteers of all ages to assist in two hour shifts between 1:30 pm and 7:30 pm at the Pantry at 5700 Rudnick Avenue Woodland Hills, CA 91367.  Most of the work will be sorting and boxing the food collected by the letter carriers. We will also need a handful of volunteers from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm, and volunteers who can drive their trucks from the Woodland Hills Post Office to the Pantry. Lastly, we need strong volunteers to load boxes into the trucks at the WH Post Office from 1:30 to 4:30 pm
 and to load boxes into our storage containers from 6 pm to 8 pm.

This week in Room 26:

Language Arts.  Continuing with Myth Making.   What do myths and stories from different cultures have in common? 

Writing.  Informational Writing. Animal Survival.  How do living organisms, such as animals, survive in their environment?
