This weekend we reflect on what we are thankful for and enjoy our time with family, plentiful food and good cheer. Let’s also take a moment to think of those who are not as fortunate. On Monday, November 19th begins AmPark’s Annual Food Drive in support of our local community.
From November 19 – December 7 you can help support POTS – a local food pantry.
Please have your children bring your food donations to their teachers or classrooms. There will be a class competition! The top two winning classes will receive a special surprise!

- Canned fruit and vegetables
- Dry and canned beans
- Canned meats (i.e. tuna, chicken, ham – in water)
