For the fourth year in a row, Maugansville Elementary students participated in the "Kids Helping Kids" food drive, and for the fourth year in a row, Maugansville Elementary collected the most food in Washington County.

This year, students collected 2,197 items for a total of 1,944 pounds of food. Collecting the highest number of items was Mrs. Schultz's fourth-grade class, with 240 items. A close second was Mrs. Kaufman's fourth-grade class, with 219 items. Following in third place was Mrs. Wade's second-grade, with 191 items. Fourth was Mrs. Tritapoe's fourth-grade, and fifth was Mrs. Edwards's first-grade class.

Appreciation is expressed to the Maugansville PTA, which helped motivate and provide students with treats for the winning class. Appreciation is also expressed to students and parents. A special thank you goes to Dave King, who was very gracious in collecting, counting and packing cans and miscellaneous items to be locally distributed by Food Resources Inc. in connection with the Maryland Food Bank.

Finally, a special thank you to Karen King, the school's counselor, who promotes and organizes the food drive every year.
