The Room 221 community was so inspired by the good work the Needham Food Pantry and the Needham Community Council is doing, they decided to host their own food drive. Students can choose to bring in non-perishable items beginning tomorrow: Wednesday, March 23 - Friday, April 15. We will sort and graph the food we get each day and report back to all of you! Thank you for your support!
