The Student Council and Bowie Elementary School chose to give rather than receive when given the opportunity to support the Rio Grande Valley Food Bank.
The students entered a tree-decorating contest sponsored by LACKS Furniture Store, and took home the top prize. The number of cans a team collected determined the winner. Bowie students and staff donated over 1,000 cans of food to the organization. Each can counted as one vote for Bowie’s tree.
The items collected will be mailed as care packages to the troops overseas. The prize of $200.00 will be used to sponsor future community service projects by the student council.
