Bancroft Food Drive

Drop off some food for those more in need this Christmas/Holiday Season.  Here's the info:

The PTA, along with the Student Council, is planning the annual Holiday Food Drive. Once again the Sacramento Senator Lions have donated turkeys, and with your help we will collect food to create individual family food baskets  Each December, since 2001, Bancroft Elementary School has distributed over 350  Holiday Food Baskets to local  family and friends in the hopes to brighten the holiday season. This year we are planning Holiday Baskets for at least 35 families. Last year, your generous donations were the reason we were able to reach 38 families from our local community providing them with fresh, healthy and nutritious food baskets for the holiday season.  

The food drive will begin on Tuesday, December 17th, and will conclude on Thursday, December 19th. Food  donations will be accepted in the multipurpose room before or after school. The Baskets will be distributed to families on Friday, December 20th.
