Delta High School Student Council, the Delta Police Department and Delta Food Pantry are teaming up for a food and toy drive as part of our DHSCares: Spirit of Giving Campaign. The campaign runs Nov. 12 to Dec. 4 and will culminate with a tribute to law enforcement and community celebration during the First Colorado National Bank basketball tournament Dec. 16 at Delta High School.
Throughout November, STUCO will be organizing various schoolwide competitions as well as friendly rivalry among community organizations including DMS, Lincoln, Garnet and others to collect as many food items and new toys as possible.
In early December, Delta Police officers and DHS Student Council elf teams will gleefully deliver a handful of DHSCares holiday packages to local families that will include food, toys and personalized items. The remaining bulk of donations will go to the Delta Food Panty and area children's advocacy organizations for the holidays.
Santa's secret wish list of needed food items includes 8-ounce sizes of peanut butter, canned tomatoes, instant Jiffy brand breads and canned tuna. Cash, check and other donations are welcome.
Drop locations include Delta High School, Delta Police Department, Bill Heddles Recreation Center and Delta City Hall.
To join in the merriment of giving, or to nominate a family that would benefit from this outreach please contact Shawna.Magtutu@deltaschools.com or Chief Kettle, Charles@cityofdelta.net.
