Union Elementary Celebrates "100 Days Smarter" with a Big Donation to Reach Out Lakota

To celebrate being “100 Days Smarter”, Union Elementary challenged each of its 25 classrooms to bring in 100 items during a four-day food drive to benefit Reach Out Lakota.

This is the second year for the program, and Union families more than met the challenge.

“We didn’t just meet our school goal – we blew it out of the water!” said Principal Ben Brown. “In just four days, we collected 4,019 items for Reach Out Lakota.”

That is the biggest donation the school has ever made to the local food pantry. Brown continued, "Union has a long-standing partnership with Reach Out Lakota and sincerely thanks all of our families and students for responding to the call to be charitable givers."

Students celebrated on Friday with a special “smarties” snack, and students in classrooms that reached the 100 item goal received a spirit tattoo to wear to school. The classroom with the highest overall total also received a special prize from the school’s PTSO.
