Bremen High Schools students will soon be going throughout the community for a good cause and they’re asking for the town’s support.
Benjamin Nick, BHS student council president, said the students will be in the community 7-8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 11, to collect items for the Bremen Food Bank.
Specifically, the students hope residents can donate
- canned goods, including fruits and vegetables
- canned soups and stews
- boxed pasta, including macaroni dinners
- cereal
- peanut butter
- oatmeal
- and other nonperishable food items.
Nick said the students are also hoping to collect toiletries, which are often overlooked as donations.
The student council president some items they hope to collect include
- deodorant
- toothpaste and toothbrushes
- shampoo and soap
- shaving cream
- razors
But even if residents don’t have any extra food or toiletries on hand to donate, they can still make a difference.
Money can be given. Checks should be made payable to BHS Student Council. The student council will collect the funds and write a single check to the food bank.
Students will be wearing name tags or ID badges when they collect the food and toiletries.
For more information, contact the school at 574-546-3511.
