Myers leads FCA cereal drive


Ethan McGee

Myers leads the cereal drive with almost 170 boxes collected so far.

The midway totals are in and Myers Elementary School is running away with the race for cereal box donations.

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is sponsoring a cereal box drive in an effort to collect donations for the St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry in Altoona.

Myers has collected 168 cereal boxes in the three weeks since the food drive began.

The Bellwood-Antis Middle School is second with 148 boxes collected.

FCA advisor Mr. Nick Lovrich has broken down middle and high school donations by homeroom, with Mrs. Stephanie Kuhn’s homeroom leading the way with 38 boxes collected. Mr. Tom Partner is close behind with 24, but six middle school homerooms have reached double-digits.

In the high school, Mrs. Andrea Brant’s homeroom is in front by a long shot, tied with Kuhn’s for the building-high mark at 38. The next closest homerooom is Mrs. Ali Stinson’s with seven.

The middle and high school home rooms collecting the most cereal boxes will receive a pizza party.

FCA is attempting to better the record number of cereal boxes it collected in 2015 when it gathered more than 1,500 boxes to send to the food pantry.

The drive lasts until February 26.
