Kenmore East High School students and staff sponsored the 15th annual Gobblin' Up Hunger food drive during the month of November, collecting an astounding 30,181 food items. This brings the 15-year total to 192,402 food items!
The food is delivered to approximately 20 Kenmore East families in need, as well as Good Shepard Food Pantry and the Food Bank Of WNY.
This year, social studies teacher Steven Viglietti won the "Biggest Turkey" contest for having the highest number of donations made in his name. Viglietti had to wear a turkey costume all day while teaching.
Special thanks go out to all the Kenmore East students and staff who continue to selflessly give their time, money and food to a cause that has an immediate and lasting impact.
