Oxford Central Collects Cans For Caring Cupboard

Students in K-2 at Oxford Central School collected 140 cans of soup for those in need! Pictured students are, back row l-r, Amelia Witt, Brianna Tate, Lily Haines, Maebh McCluskey, Matthew Gibbons, and Ty Jones. In front are Sydney Perrette, Robert Kittle, Connor Wolfe, Caitlyn Lyon, Brady Finnegan, and Lila D'Oliviera. Accompanying them is Pastor Jean McMullan, of the United Methodist Church in Washington, accepting the cans on behalf of UMC's Caring Cupboard.

As part of a character education program that helped mark the 100th day of school, Oxford Central School students in kindergarten through second grade collected 140 cans of soup for the Caring Cupboard food pantry in Washington. The CORRECT character education program includes “Citizenship” in its curriculum, and the students (and their teachers Ms. Knauer, Mrs. DeMarco, Mrs. DiRenzo, Mrs. Esposito, Mrs. Hart, and Mrs. Saxton) thought that the food collection would be a great way to practice good citizenship. The students were happy to assist the local food pantry, which is run by the United Methodist Church in Washington Borough.
