Magma Ranch and Skyline Ranch schools donate cans

On Tuesday, Nov. 24, Magma Ranch and Skyline Ranch counted and turned in all of the canned foods and cash donations they received this holiday season to help needy families around the valley.

For Magma Ranch, this was their third annual food drive and they brought in over 3,000 toiletries, cleaning supplies and food items which they donated to the San Tan Valley Chapter of the Pan de Vida Foundation. The seventh grade class brought in the most items by a single group and in return, the Magma Student Council will donate money to their class that will help pay for their end of the year field trip.

At Skyline Ranch, they were able to raise $1,146.00 and over 3,000 canned non-perishable food items. The money and food was donated to St. Vincent DePaul. The class who brought in the most cash and food donations was Mrs. Karen Garroutte’s fourth Grade Class. The whole class got to put whipped cream pies in the administrators’ faces for winning. Skyline Ranch as a whole was treated to a visit from Matt and Ben from KNIX who showed their gratitude for the donation.

“All of the schools in our district support local food drives around the holiday season and we are proud of the civil leaders we are producing in the Florence School District. Congratulations to both schools for a job well done.” Dr. Fuller, FUSD superintendent of schools said in the release.

The Queen Creek Independent is mailed each month to 24,000 homes.
