Every year, ACA hosts a school-wide food drive to provide 40-50 food boxes to ACA families in need, for Thanksgiving. Our Middle School students are working tirelessly on the Food Drive, keeping a close count of donations ensuring we have everything we need to fill the boxes.
Recently, the students realized we were running very low on donated Turkeys. They were brainstorming and thinking of ways we could reach our goal to ensure families get the turkey dinner they otherwise would not be able to have.
Enter, the Surprise Lions. The Surprise Lion's Club caught wind of the need and the heart behind our food drive and started collecting money within their group. Today they dropped off $220 in donations with another $100 on its way! Our students were shocked and overwhelmed by the gesture and gave a collective sigh of relief, because of the kindness and generosity of the Surprise Lions and the giving hearts of all of ACA, we will be able to fill 50 boxes with a full Thanksgiving dinner.
We want to say a BIG thank you to the Surprise Lions for making this possible!
