They collected 5409 items this year. We would like to thank all that helped donate to this year’s food drive .
The winners of the Contest were as follows:
Most items from a High School Class : Mr. Owsley ( 304 items)
Most items from Junior High Class: Mr. Ruiz ( 844 items)
Best Creativity in building High School : Mr. Leinweber

Ridgeview School District is excited to announce the launch of the Annual Canned Food Drive! All donations will directly benefit our local community and will help stock the Food Pantry of Colfax at the Methodist Church. Ridgeview will be accepting cans from now until December 14th. If you are interested in donating non-perishable food items, please bring them to the high school office during regular school hours or during an after-school activity.
In addition to the Food Drive, Ridgeview is hosting the second annual Winter Wonder-Can. Each mentoring class will build a creative holiday themed winter-scape with the donated items. This event is a lot of fun and will be open to the public and we will release details soon. If you have a specific mentoring class that you would like your donations to go towards, please let someone in the office know.
If you have any questions, please contact the high school office at 309-723-2951. Thank you for supporting our school and our community! Happy Holidays!
