Cq.d_CjJ:[rald FAhrua 26 1998 Paae 5 Students' Christmas food collections continue to aid needy persons Every year just before Christmas, students in Quid City high schools sponsor food drives, they go door to door; they have collection boxes at school and in local businesses. .The canned and packaged food they gather is donated to people in need, which is part of the spirit of the holiday season. Brewster and Bridgeport high school students donate the results of their efforts to food banks in the two towns. It is a gift that lasts after Christmas is gone. "It makes them (the students) more aware of the needs in their community," Students in theCurrent World Problems class at Brewster High School, aided by children at Brewster Elementaby School,collected 55 boxesofcans and packages worth approximately $3,000, and donated $264.13 in cash as well. That was in mid-December. "We're still using some of it (the food)," said Brewster Food Bank director Gladys Gilmartin. The money was used to pay for extra items for the Christmas food baskets. The food collected by the kids, from the local Boy Scout chapter and from the Community Medical Center has been extra important this year, since one of the The new Inductees have more than doubled the size of the Pateros National Honor Society chapter.

The food collected at Christmas has been used to fill the gap, Gilmartin said. Bridgeport Food Bank director Jo Miller said more than 2,000 cans and packages collected by the Bridgeport chapter of the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) was distributed at Christmas. Club members sorted the food and packaged it; they gave it out as an addition to the regular distribution. Miller said there were FB LA members distributing the food as long as the food bank was open. "We had a lot of food that day." She said this is the second year the students have been involved in distributing the food as well as collecting it. The food bank operators believe it gives the kids a lot of satisfaction to see their efforts to aid the community in action, she said. In addition, school was out of session'for tWO full weeks and school breakfast and lunch were not being served; many families may have needed the extra food to supply the extra meals. "It (the food collection) really helps us a lot," Miller said; it is good for the food bank, which has additional items to distribute, and good for the kids. It makeg them more aware of the needs in their community, she said. "We love it when we know the kids are coming by."
