Community Food Drive Supports Local Families in Need

By Ellie W. ’23, Foxcroft Service Organization Co-Head

The Foxcroft Service Organization is having a food drive for Banneker Elementary School in Middleburg! Donated food will be distributed to families in need of extra support. Foxcroft families can drop off their contributions from the list below when attending the upcoming Fox/Hound Field Hockey games or the Christmas Pageant. Day students may drop off donations at any time and boarders can pick up some goods during Middleburg, Leesburg, or Purcellville trips on weekends when they go shopping for themselves!
To donate, leave your donation in one of the boxes outside Engelhard Gymnasium. This will be extra special for the holidays and means a lot, so please consider donating what you can. See the Food Drive wish list of needed items below — it’s sorted by dorm. This project is ongoing until Easter so please stay tuned for updates!
