Hagerstown Children’s School held its annual food drive to help the Maryland Food Bank — Western Maryland Branch (formerly Food Resources Inc.).

The children, on the first of four collection days, brought in a box of cereal and were permitted to wear their pajamas to school. 

The staff said it is always a fun day and it creates awareness of the need to help others in the community.

The students collected 79 boxes of cereal that day and will be collecting cans of vegetables, fruit and juice, as well. The school is on South Potomac Street.

The school is a nonprofit preschool, kindergarten and child-care center for those ages 2 to 5.
