Sleepy Eye Elementary School students collected 1,001 items for the food shelf this holiday season.

Sleepy Eye Elementary School students collected 1,001 items for the food shelf this holiday season. The food collection project is done instead of a gift exchange among students. On Friday, Dec. 22, before getting out of school for the Christmas break, the elementary students celebrated the season of giving by getting together to sing Holiday Carols in the school gym. After school on Friday, members of the junior high basketball team helped deliver the donation to the Sleepy Eye Food Shelf.
