Hoover Middle helps gobblin’ up hunger

KENMORE - Herbert Hoover Middle School in the Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda UFSD has challenged students, teachers and staff to bring in nonperishable food goods to help fill the shelves at St. Timothy’s Outreach Food Bank and the Kenton Family Support Center, both in the Town of Tonawanda, in time for Thanksgiving Day.

In order to spur support for this worthy effort, twenty teachers and staff have volunteered to wear a turkey costume on Wednesday, November 27, 2013, depending on whose box contains the greatest number of donations on Tuesday at the end of the school day.

Numbers have been running neck and neck, but Renee Freda, a sixth grade English Language Arts teacher is still in the lead today with 222 pieces in her box.

She has been heard practicing her turkey gobble for the big day. But, with a week to go, it’s still a horse, or rather a turkey, race.

The Gobblin’ Up Hunger Drive is in its fourth year of operation and is always a huge success as the community joins together to donate to a worthy cause as well as savor the delight of having one of Hoover’s adults gobble and strut through the halls. Student Council sponsors the event, having purchased the bright and colorful turkey costume three years ago.
