The Thanksgiving Food Drive is Here!

Category : School Events

Our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive is here!  Each year, we come together with the entire CVUSD and partner with Castro Valley Outreach to provide much needed food and cheer to over 150 CV families in need.  Each grade level is requested to bring any of the following non-perishable and unexpired items to school from Monday, November 9th to Friday, November 20th.

Stuffing (box or bag)
Gravy (can or jar)
Canned cranberries
Canned tomatoes
Dinner napkins
1st Grade
Cornbread mix
Canned potatoes
Canned green beans
Holiday cookies
2nd Grade
Dried pasta
Scalloped potatoes
Canned corn
Canned fruit
3rd Grade
Canned mixed vegetables
Canned soups
Fruit juice
4th Grade

Baked beans
Canned peas
Canned olives
Aluminum roasting pans

*Please check expiration dates as expired food cannot be accepted!

The balance of the menu is perishable and will be purchased by our Castro Valley Outreach volunteers. To create a well-rounded holiday meal for our families, we also need gift cards in any denomination from Safeway, Lucky or Trader Joe’s. Please leave gift cards in the Office for safe keeping. Anyone wishing to write a check to “Castro Valley Outreach” can also leave the check in the Office. Cash donations are tax deductible and you will receive a thank you letter.

What a great way to show our children what we all have to be thankful for. Reach out and help others. Give what is right not what is left!
