The 6th Annual Edison Middle School Food Drive Turkey Trot took place in November. The students at EMS donated over 1200 items to help those in need in our community. In conjunction with their donations, they each participated in the Turkey Trot held on Tuesday, November 22, 2016. It was a fantastic way to usher in the Thanksgiving holiday. A big “thank you” to the Milan American Legion Post #527 for their generous donation which provided prizes for our trotters. Also, we need to thank Quarry Hill Orchard for their apple donation as a healthy snack for our trotters. Another big “thank you” to our Edison Middle School Student Council members who collected and organized the donation process of our food drive and also helped to provide the after race treats.
Our hope is to continue to instill in our students a compassion for those with greater needs than our own and at the same time, build a sense of community. Their efforts towards these goals make all of us at EMS proud.
