Port Angeles High School students want to help feed the community.  That’s why they continued the tradition of a fall student food drive.  Each activity of Homecoming week, the last week of September, was centered around the collection of non-perishable food.

 “I see kids at school who get a meal for the weekend through the Friday Food Bag program,” said Andrew Pena, PAHS senior.  “Friday Food Bags is a good program offered by the Port Angeles Food Bank for disadvantaged kids.  It’s a good thing for us to find a way to replenish the Food Bank.”

“We are part of something, said Alex Hertzog, a junior at Port Angeles High School.  We get the opportunity to be a part of a connection between the food bank and our school.”

 “We had a total of 3,601 food items and 1,830 hygiene items that we delivered to the Port Angeles Food Bank on September 28,” reported Pam Helpenstell, PAHS teacher.  “That’s a record amount!  I’m very proud of these kids.”
