District 7 Nurses Organize Thanksgiving Donation Drive

This year, the annual Thanksgiving drive organized by District 7 nurses, provided more than 70 District 7 families in need with food baskets for the Thanksgiving holiday that contained a variety of canned and boxed foods, fresh fruit, and vouchers or gift cards to purchase turkeys and other items for a complete family meal.  These baskets were made possible by generous donations from District 7 students, families, and community groups.  We are very thankful for the outpouring of generosity and caring from our community!
