386 Cans Collected

Students in Mrs. Weeds' first grade class in Carrington School have been collecting cans for three weeks as part of a food drive contest created by Alderman George Noujaim and ShopRite. The class that collects the most cans wins a pizza party, but Mrs. Weeds' students collected the cans because they knew it was a good thing to do. "Most of my students do not even like pizza believe it or not. They were doing it simply for the fact that it was to help out the people in our city that need it the most," Mrs. Weeds explained. The items will be donated to the Waterbury food pantries.
