Giving Back To The Community

In 2006, the CAPE Student Council wanted to start a tradition of giving back to our community.  That year, they started a collection of items for our local food bank and women's shelter, where a great need was recognized.  This is the 11th year of CAPE students "stacking the sleigh" for charity.  Collection will take place from the end of November 2017 until mid December 2017.  The class with the most items per student will win lunch for their class.  The second-place class will win cookies and milk.  Winners will be announced at the last Star Student Assembly in December 2017.

Here is what is on the wish lists for our organizations:

Food Bank

Non-perishable food items and gift cards for gas & groceries are needed greatly this year.  

  • Canned meat (tuna, salmon, ham, chicken)
  • Peanut butter (small sizes)
  • Canned fruit
  • Pancake mix & syrup
  • Kraft Dinner
  • Canned meals (Chef Boyardee, Alphagetti, etc...)
  • Canned vegetables
  • Single serving meals (frozen entrees etc...)
  • Boxed meals (Hamburger Helper etc...)
  • Noodles (Ichiban etc...)
  • Dry soup mix
  • Laundry soap
  • Dish soap

Cash is always welcome as the food bank needs to purchase perishable items such as fresh produce, milk, cheese, eggs and to pay for the processing of donated beef.
