A Sweet Food Drive This Holiday Season at Fox Point Elementary School

Hot Chocolate Drive going on until Dec. 14

Students and their families are encouraged to collect hot chocolate mix now until Dec. 14 at for the Hunger Task Force.

“This is a need the children can understand,” said Stormonth Principal, Dr. Dan Westfahl. “They all like hot chocolate. They all like that warmth, so this was a good way to have them reach out to others in need.”

According to the Hunger Task Force, recent census information shows that 1 out of 2 children in Milwaukee live in  poverty. The Hunger Task Force will put the hot chocolate in holiday bins that will also contain cereal, juice, fresh oranges, vegetables, other sweet treats including candy canes and cookies. The bins will be delivered to 800 local families on Dec. 18.

All grades, K4 through 4, will participate in the hot chocolate drive. Dr. Westfahl said one third-grade class is so excited about the collection, they are making posters to promote the drive that will be hung up throughout the school.

Last year, students collected 300 pounds of hot chocolate, which is more than 450 boxes. Dr. Westphal said the students are hoping to meet and even beat that number this holiday season. Collection bins are located in the lobby of the school for parents and students to drop off hot chocolate.
