The Escalon FFA Chapter teamed up with the Peer Interaction Team to take in food donations from Sunday, Nov. 1 to Wednesday, Nov. 18 for its annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. Collection boxes were put into various classrooms around the school to make it a school-wide effort. All in all, enough food was collected to provide 14 local families with full Thanksgiving meals complete with a turkey and all of the fixings. The chapter would like to thank all of the participants who contributed to the effort and a special thanks to all of the EHS staff and counseling center personnel for giving to such a thoughtful cause and helping facilitate such a large undertaking
