Woodland Thanksgiving Baskets

Woodland Thanksgiving Baskets
Woodland Thanksgiving
On Saturday, November 16th, Woodland families came together as one to create Thanksgiving baskets for families who could use a little extra help this holiday season. After collecting very specific food items for over a month at Woodland, the students got a chance to see what happens to all of those food donations they generously brought in each day. 
Students in grades Pre-k thru 5 went "shopping" with an organized list created by our amazing PTA, for the Thanksgiving food items that would be in each basket. Stuffing, cornbread, canned vegetables, marshmallows, pie crusts and pie filling, (just to name a few),  went from the table into the baskets which were soon piled high with all the necessary ingredients to make a Thanksgiving feast! 
The baskets were complete with colored pictures and beautiful cards, wrapped and ribboned, and will be delivered to deserving families this week. A total of 10 baskets in all, as well as boxes of extra food that was donated to local churches for their food pantries.  It was an amazing and special day for all of us.
