UPDATE: GCAA's "Lend a Can" Food Drive ends this week and we need more donations! "Lend a Can", which benefits the St. Louis Area Foodbank, officially ends Sat., Oct. 13, but our deadline is Thurs., Oct. 11 because there is no school on Fri., Oct. 12. That gives us TWO more school days to collect donations. A few items from most of us will make a big impact. The drive is not limited to GCAA families - please ask neighbors, friends, and extended family to donate. We are collecting non-perishable food items (no glass containers). The food collection area is in the school lobby. Thanks to everyone who has contributed! --- "Lend a Can" is a terrific community service project with fundraising potential sponsored by Shop n' Save and Del Monte. The local school that collects the most pounds of food between September 23 - October 13 wins $2,500. Five runners up will each win $1,000. GCAA will collect non-perishable food items between September 24 - October 13. No glass containers, please. Please support this effort to benefit the St. Louis Foodbank - hunger is a reality for 1 in 8 St. Louisans. Donations are not limited to just GCAA students, parents, and staff - grandparents, friends, and neighbors may also contribute. Students, please wear orange (or GCAA shirt) on our kickoff day, Monday, Sept. 24. Collection barrels will be stationed in the school lobby beginning that day. Please read this flyer for complete details.
