MAUGANSVILLE — For the fifth year in a row, Maugansville Elementary School students participated in the Kids Helping Kids food drive. 

This year’s students collected 2,427 items for a total of 1,809 pounds of food.  Collecting the highest number of items was Mrs. Tritapoe’s fourth-grade class with 390 items. Second was Ms. Crunkleton’s fifth-grade class with 298 items. A close third was Mrs. Moore’s class with 294 items. Fourth was Mrs. Schultz’s fourth grade, and fifth was Mrs. Yost’s third grade. 

The winning class will celebrate with an ice cream sundae party. The runner-up classes will receive an ice cream treat.

Appreciation is expressed to parents who opened their hearts and pantries to assist Maugansville Elementary in this project. A special thank you goes to Dave King, who assisted in the gathering of the items. The food will be locally distributed by Maryland Food Bank — Western Branch.
