pounds of food
The North Myrtle Beach Varsity Cheerleaders, along with students, faculty and families, collected 360 jars of peanut butter and jelly for North Strand Helping Hand.
The North Myrtle Beach Varsity Cheerleaders sponsored a Peanut Butter and Jelly Drive for the local food pantry, North Strand Helping Hand. The cheerleaders helped with making posters, collecting the jars and packing the truck from NSHH. They teamed up with the Chiefs swimming, volleyball, golf and cross country teams, along with the student council to collect jars of peanut butter and jelly - staple items needed by many families in the local community.
In addition, many other students made donations through classroom teachers encouraging them. In addition, they had more support for their efforts by Principal Trevor Strawderman having a “Jeans Day” for the staff, a special day where teachers can dress down. Teachers earned this privilege by donating a jar of peanut butter and jelly.
The school news team, Chief on the Daily, broadcast the drive appealing to many students in the school to help out. The work experience class got involved and covered boxes with bright paper and helped with counting and keeping track of donations, reaching many groups of students through this drive. They will continue to help North Strand Helping Hand this winter by doing a soup drive to build the food panty.
This project lasted four weeks which allowed so many different groups to help with the collection.
At the conclusion of the drive, they collected 360 jars, which equaled 685 pounds of food.
