Richland School Donates 3 Tons of Food to Local Food Bank
Richland -- Here it is, the day after Halloween, and Richland kids are sharing nearly 3 tons of food with families who cannot afford meals for their children.
Students at Oasis School in Richland could be seen this morning delivering huge boxes to the Richland Food Bank on Wellsian Way. The total amount of food collected was 5,933 pounds, including close to 2 thousand pounds of apples gleaned in a local orchard a last week.
In 2006 the Oasis students collected, all told, over 35-hundred pounds of food.
