Students at Westwood Elementary held a food drive to donate canned goods to the local food pantry organized by UCMAC, United Christian Ministries of Abbeville County. The students collected a total of 400 cans to donate.   Dawn Whittle’s class took on the project of community helpers by collecting, counting, and organizing each day’s canned goods.  Anna William’s 4th grade class and Dawn Whittle’s class earned a pizza party for the largest percentage of cans collected by each class.
