Student council gathers canned goods

The Student Council at La Jolla Elementary School led a school-wide food drive and gathered more than 4,000 cans of food for the Citadel, the local branch of The Salvation Army last week.

They chose the Salvation Army because it serves families living in areas that are close to our school. During the past year, donations have dropped more than 3 percent while there has been a 300 percent increase in requests for help, a school press release noted.
