                        If you can, please support our annual food drive during 

                    Make a Difference Week - (October 25 through October 29)

  All donations go directly to local food banks within our district, including the food pantry at MCMS!

The collection lasts all week - 

  • On Monday, send in canned goods (proteins like tuna, chicken, peanut butter, soups, vegetables, fruit, etc.)

  • On Tuesday, send in dry goods (cereal, oatmeal, pasta, etc.)

  • On Wednesday, send in paper goods (toilet paper, napkins, paper towels, tissues, etc.) and personal hygiene items (toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, shampoos, soaps, anti-perspirant)

  • On Thursday, send in holiday basket items (cranberry sauce, gravy, stuffing mix, canned vegetables) and backpacks for use by the food pantry.

  • On Friday, send in any item that you forgot to send in earlier in the week!  

Monetary donations are also accepted and checks may be made payable to MCMS with “Make a Difference” in the memo! 

If you prefer to donate virtually, you can do that! We can even include your donation amount in our daily tallies of items and money collected if you communicate your donation to your child’s advisor.
