Gilbert’s Generosity Goes Far

Grizzlies Give Back Before winter break, the student council at Gilbert Elementary School ended the year on a high note by sponsoring a school-wide canned food drive to support local families in need. The student leaders set a goal for their community service project, and Grizzly families and staff answered the call by donating items over the course of two weeks. In the end, the school collected 2,7430 pounds of food to contribute to the Irving Cares Food Pantry. The school’s donation raised the bar, bringing in the organization’s largest donation received at that time during the season.
