“Think of giving not as a duty, but as a privilege.”   –John D Rockefeller

2012-12-19_09-53-51_102In December, La Mariposa held its annual Stuff-A-Bus Food Drive as part of a district-wide event organized by the Las Colinas ASB.  As a school, we donated 995 pounds of food to Food SHARE!  Your generosity is appreciated by the thousands who benefit from Food SHARE programs.  As Ventura County’s regional food bank, Food SHARE distributes millions of pounds of donated food to Ventura County residents throughout the year via 150 food pantries run by churches, temples, civic organizations and community groups.  As of December 2012, FOOD Share is assisting 74,500 hungry friends each month.  If you would like to learn more about Food SHARE, please visit their website at www.foodshare.com

The food drive hosted by the school is about much more than just collecting food.  It provides an opportunity for us to set an example for our children and teach them that caring for our neighbors and serving those in need builds a stronger community.  Thank you again for your generosity!
