Join Vanderpoel in Making A Difference!

We are asking our Vanderpoel family to donate beauty/personal care bags (toiletry bags). November 28-December 7,2016. Student council will take personal care items to our CAPS Office to help families in our community.


November 28-December 16,2016 our school will also be collecting canned and dry goods to donate to the local food pantry. Our food drive will help hungry families can get emergency food assistance when they need it. DOnations will be given to our local church, Third Baptist to help feed members in communities. Please give what you can. One grocery bag of food can provide as many as 11 meals. Every single donation helps, and together we hope our combined donations will make a real difference for those in need. The food pantry is asking for nutritious canned and dry goods. 

Here are some suggestions:

Canned vegetables 

Dried beans

Fruit canned in its own juices 


Canned soups

Beef stew

Canned tuna

Canned chicken

100% fruit juices



Condiments like ketchup and salad dressing


Peanut butter

Multigrain and low-sugar cereals

Granola bars

Donations will be collected each morning from the classroom teacher. 

Thank you for all of your help!
