Students and Families Collect Food for Local Food Banks
March 8, 2021

TULSA, OKLA. – The count is in! On the last day of school, Tulsa Adventist Academy (TAA) classrooms tallied the results of their canned food drive. TAA families donated 2,447 food items that were distributed to both the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma and the Adventist nonprofit Tulsa Community Services Center. Students were given about two weeks to collect canned goods, pastas, proteins, cereals and more. Some friendly competition between classes resulted in a very small margin for grades 9-12 to win a pizza lunch on the last day of school in December. Thanks to each family who donated these items!

Miss Gil’s students, grades 2-4, bought gifts for children receiving services from Tulsa’s Child Abuse Network instead of having their own gift exchange; they also enjoyed a pizza party on the last day of school.
