Newark Teachers’ Association’s recent food drive collected 325 food items and $10.
Lincoln School first-grade teacher Kathy Chambers and pre-kindergarten teacher Stephanie Joyce organized the drive that was held throughout May.
Collection bins were placed in the foyers of each of the district’s five schools. A table manned by NTA members was set up outside Newark High School’s gymnasium so district residents could leave food items before voting.
Joyce thanked everyone who donated food items as well as Newark Central School District courier Joel DeVolder, who delivered the food items to the Newark Food Closet after the drive ended.
