FEEDING THE HUNGRY — Springville Elementary School collected food for the Springville/Concord Food Pantry, during its annual food drive.
SPRINGVILLE — Springville Elementary School held its annual food drive. Because of the cancellation of three school days, due to weather, the drive – originally scheduled for Dec. 9-12 – was extended through Dec. 18, according to Springville Elementary Student Council Member Ava Dziak.

Food was gathered in the SES main lobby. When the drive ended, food was packaged in boxes, to be taken to the Springville/Concord Food Pantry.
Food drive totals were: 111 cans of tuna fish, 35 jars of peanut butter, 141 cans and boxes of soup, 165 cans of other food, 129 boxes of pasta and 34 boxes of cereal, for a total of $1,154 worth of food for the Springville/Concord Community Food Pantry.
