POINT PLEASANT — Point Pleasant School District has donated over 4,300 pounds of food to the Fulfill Food Bank of Neptune.
The Point Pleasant School District participates in the Students Change Hunger Food Drive for Fulfill NJ year after year, often receiving top awards for their donation efforts. As a result of the 2022 Food Drive, Memorial Middle School placed 4th out of all participating schools for donating over 4,300 pounds of food. In addition, Point Pleasant Borough High School made it into the 500-pound club this year.
The Memorial Middle School Food Drive Committee, consisting of Courtney Fehring, Julie Koziel, Jennifer Moramarco, Daniel Schwamberger, and Tracy Somerville, kicked off efforts in September. Throughout the year, the committee organized fun challenges incentivizing students to bring in donations.
“We’re so proud of the middle school students and staff members who helped us donate over 4,300 pounds of food [including monetary donations] to those in need, which is over 2,900 meals,” Ms. Fehring said. “We’re happy we were able to donate so much to those in need, and we’re already planning ideas for next year’s food drive so that we can make an even bigger impact.”
