An ongoing fundraiser is being held at Cedar Park High School for canned foods to be donated to those in need this holiday season.

The fundraiser is hosted in a collaboration between school organizations, Key Club and PALs. Donations can be dropped off in the Key Club room, S106, and can range from canned soups or tuna fish to baby formula or evaporated milk, anything that won’t expire if not refrigerated. The food will be donated to the Hill Country Ministries and Jonestown Food Pantry to help feed those looking for a meal this Thanksgiving.

“We actually take it to the Hill Country Ministries, the Food Pantry,” Key Club sponsor, Amy Durden, said. “[The food] gets sorted so they can make baskets based on what people need and what their dietary restrictions are.”

According to Durden, Key Club and PALs have been co-hosting this annual event to further spread the word about the drive for the last few years.

“This event will be benefiting some Jonestown families and just some different families in the community who are maybe going through a hard time,” PALs teacher Jared Lippe said. “So maybe we can help them out.”
