Holiday Food Drive

Eshleman Students, Families, and Staff,

WOW!  What a fantastic response to our Christmas food drive!  Thanks to all the students, families, and community for providing canned goods and non-perishable items for nine of our Eshleman families.

Altogether we were able to collect 1,338 items.  This number includes 395 non-perishable items donated by Millersville University students and bakery items donated by Weis Markets.   What a huge display we had in the front lobby!  These contributions were boxed and made ready for distribution by students in Mrs. Bear’s class.  Mrs. Rosenberg’s class collected and charted the number of items donated by each class on a daily basis.

In this time of higher unemployment and tough economic conditions, it has been hard for many families in our communities to provide for their families.  Many of us never thought that we would be facing the difficulties that now confront us.  Knowing this, it is truly amazing that we received such an abundance of goods.

On behalf of the staff and faculty of Eshleman as well as the families who received assistance over the holidays, thank you so much for your generosity and caring.
