To help serve the thousands of families who go hungry every year in Fairfax County, students at Paul VI Catholic High School in Fairfax recently hosted the annual canned food drive in support of Food for Others, an organization dedicated to forwarding free food donations to local families in need.
“I love being a part of the canned food drive because I know I’m making an impact on other’s lives,” said junior Andrea Mueller.
This year’s drive collected 56,286 cans and other boxed good donations to Food for Others in Fairfax, an increase from last year’s 48,794 donations. According to Student Life Director Katie Tinsley, the number of cans donated this year is enough food to stock Food for Others’ pantry for up to a year.
