The Granite Falls School District Food Drive is an organization that provides food and gifts for more than 200 families in need in the Granite Falls area. The High School advisers for this organization include Eric Dinwiddie, Trudy Sullivan, and Ernie Nihi. However, student coordinators hold the responsibility of ensuring that all families receive what’s needed.
Our goal this year is to collect 20,000 food items and $10,000. All donations will go to local families-in-need. The GFSD Food Drive helps change the lives of those within our community.
If you are a business or individual who is interested in donating food, money, or toys to the Granite Falls School District Food Drive, please contact us via e-mail or phone call: edinwiddie@gfalls.wednet.edu or 360.691.7713. You can also visit our website www.gfsdfooddrive.com. Our goals are high, but obtainable with YOUR generosity.
This year we encourage you to remember that one donation can have a huge effect. Your love can change the world!
