Goodfellows Food Drive

Roosevelt Elementary is proud to participate in the Livonia Goodfellows’ food drive again this year! The Goodfellows’ organization helps support families needing assistance in Livonia and portions of Westland. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn about charity and lending a hand to families who need support during this season.

The food drive is running October 16 through November 17. Classroom teachers will have a box located outside their classroom doors for donations of canned, boxed, and plastic jars containing nutritious foods to give to families in need. Every single donation is greatly appreciated! Each classroom will have a student to represent the class and help count items.

A committee of 4th graders has been formed to participate in this charity event.  The 4th grade students will help collect and count the items with Mrs. Martz, on Fridays, during recess time.  We will also have a bulletin board displaying a turkey for each class to show our participation. The turkeys will earn a feather for every ten cans, boxes, or plastic jars, the class donates for the charity. The turkey with the most feathers, at the end of the drive, will be recognized with a luncheon for the class.

Thank you for your support!
