MEC recently helped students from the Paw Paw School District with their annual food drive. From Nov. 19 through Dec. 7, students from Paw Paw Middle School competed with each other to see who could bring in the most food to help the Paw Paw Lions Club build holiday baskets for families in need. The Student Council and Leos Club members helped facilitate the drive, and some students also helped build the baskets.

In total, the students brought in 1,575 food items. The sixth grade brought 756 items, the most out of all three grades, and Ms. Gronda’s first-hour band class earned the winning trophy with 419 items. Both the winning grade and the winning class earned a special treat for their hard work. Additionally, MEC made a contribution to Eleanor’s Pantry in Paw Paw in honor of the winning grade.
