-Finish marketing materials.  Thank you to Saddi, Mariam, Safra, Ellie, Nicole, and Father Blizzard for bringing the drive to the attention of donors via chapel, flyers, boxes, and speeches 

Drive donations will be collected on a daily basis by Mr. Garth and his crew from all divisions except PD, which takes their donations via red wagon to the trailer on Thursday.  Mrs. Sharp will let us know the exact time.  Mrs. Clay made the appropriate request for maintenance to pick-up donations via School Dude.  The Food Bank Trailer of Hope will be by the Middle Division building on Monday, October 24th and will leave campus the following Monday, October 29th.

Nicole, our speaker from the Food Bank, will come to pick-up the check from the YAC Food Drive Planning and volunteers team.  She wants a photo taken for marketing purposes by the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma professional photographer.  She will come on November 

Alumni volunteered on October 20th at the Food Bank in the evening.
