Covel D. Searcy Elementary School held the H.O.P.E. Food Drive (Helping Other People Eat) on Nov. 9-13. The students collected 291 cans of food. All of the food was donated to the food pantry at the Green Hills Community Action Agency to help them fill out their Christmas baskets. Mrs. Cross’ kindergarten students sponsored the event. They appreciate everyone who contributed. This is the seventh year for the food drive.
