Food bank working with area schools

The Fayette County Community Action Agency food bank is working with Fayette County schools on community food drives.

“The goal of the School Spirit Food Drives is to increase hunger awareness within the community and obtain much-needed nonperishable canned food items for the Food Bank to distribute to Fayette County residents in need,” said Jennifer Canada, project manager.

The School Spirit Food Drives will be held for one week at the participating schools. Students will bring nonperishable food items to the schools and leave them in an area designated by the school principals.

Additional food will be collected at Uniontown, Laurel Highlands, Brownsville, Connellsville and Geibel high school football games.

Family members and friends are encouraged to bring nonperishable items to the game. Food Bank representatives will collect these items.

Food will be collected Monday-Friday at Brownsville School District including the Friday football game; Monday-Friday at Albert Gallatin School District; Monday-Saturday at Geibel Catholic High School, including the Saturday football game; Monday-Saturday at Holy Rosary School; Oct. 6-10 at Connellsville Area High School, including the Oct.10 football game; Oct. 20-24 at Laurel Highlands High School District, including at Oct. 24 football game.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
