G.C. Hartman Elementary School's food drive was a tremendous success. The drive which concluded on Friday, May 23rd collected 1,169 food items. The food drive will benefit the Food For Friends Food Bank in Catawissa, which serves all residents of the Southern Columbia Area School District. Many thanks to the K-4 students, staff, and all others who supported this community service project. Your generosity is very impressive!  For more information about the food bank, please phone (570) 356-7312 or (570) 356-2036.
