GIVE TO THE FBLA FOOD DRIVE, THROUGH FRI., 11/17


MVHS Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) is organizing a food drive to benefit Minsink Cares. All five Minisink Valley schools are contributing to this effort and invite you to share your bounty this holiday season with less fortunate families in our midst.

WHY IT MATTERS:

  • 1-in-6 children in America may not know where they will get their next meal. 
  • 20 percent of Minisink students experience some form of food insecurity. 

Let’s pull together to take care of our own. Let’s contribute to our school food drive to make sure all Minisink families are provided for this holiday season.
