2021 SMES PTO Food Drive

Food insecurity and child hunger have skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic, and food banks across the country are struggling to meet increased demand. So, the PTO is inviting all SMES families to participate in a food drive the week of May 3rd.

From May 3 – 7, 2021, we will be collecting canned vegetables, canned or non-perishable fruit, and/or peanut butter during morning carpool. Bins will also be available throughout the day so families may drop off donations at their convenience. All donations will benefit the Suthers Center.
Win a Gift Card to The Springs Cinema!

Families who include an encouraging letter or drawing with their donation will be entered in a raffle to win a $75 gift card to The Springs Cinema. There will be three winners:  one from EC, one from ES, and one from MS. 
  • Have your child write a letter or color a picture to include with your donation.
  • Kids can use the sample letter and/or coloring pages found in the "Downloads" section of this page, or they can create their own! 
  • Messages should be encouraging and uplifting. Please refrain from using language that may communicate any assumptions about the particular circumstances of a food bank client.
  • Letters should be addressed generally (e.g., “Dear Friend,” “Dear Neighbor,” “To a Fellow Georgian,” etc.) so that they can be given to any food bank client.
  • Your child can sign his or her first name to the letter or use an “anonymous” sign-off (e.g., your friend, your neighbor, a fellow Georgian, etc.).
  • Please put your child’s submission(s) in an envelope labeled with your child’s first & last name and his or her grade.
