What does it take to be charitable? Just ask the Bellwood-Antis Education Association because it’s the time of the year: the BAEA  food drive is in full force.

Last year, we filled three SUV’s. I would love to exceed that.”

— Mr. Sachse

Students are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to school to give to their homeroom teachers from November 1 through November 13. Teachers will collect them, and then be eligible for a classroom prize for gathering the most donations. All proceeds go to the St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry in Altoona.

Items students can bring are:

  • Spaghetti
  • Canned or jarred spaghetti sauce
  • Pasta noodles
  • Canned corn
  • Mac and cheese
  • Pork and beans
  • Peanut butter
  • Soups

Last year Mr. Charlie Burch won in the high school, but Mrs. Ruda Burns was the overall winner for the entire middle and high school building.

“Last year, we filled three SUV’s. I would love to exceed that,” said BAEA president Mr.Patrick Sachse.

BAEA is also holding a pair jeans day for staff members on November 13.

Mr. Sachse says, “Hopefully we can raise $375, with at least 75 staff participating.”

Mr. Sachse said he is proud of B-A that students have a great impact on this food drive. He wants to teach the students the value and excitement of helping others.

Of his role as the local organizer of the event, Mr. Sachse said, “It’s exhausting at times, but it’s important to have leaders making positive things happen.
