Help Dickinson ISD Stuff the Bus for the M. I. Lewis Food Pantry

The Dickinson ISD annual Stuff the Bus Food Drive will take place Nov. 1-11. For the next two weeks students, parents and staff members are encouraged to bring in non-perishable food items and monetary donations to benefit the M.I. Lewis Food Pantry. Through a relationship with the Houston Food Bank, M.I. Lewis is able to purchase approximately $10 worth of food for only $1. Flyer

This food drive provides several months of food for the food pantry, which serves families throughout the Dickinson ISD boundaries. In 2010, Dickinson ISD donated approximately 30,000 items of non-perishable food and $11,000 in monetary donations. Donations will be accepted at all Dickinson ISD campuses. The class at each campus collecting the most items will be presented with the campus Stuff the Bus traveling trophy. Dickinson ISD school buses will travel to all campuses on Monday, Nov. 14 to collect donations and deliver them to M.I. Lewis.

For more information about the Food Drive, contact any Dickinson ISD campus or call 281-229-6080.
