D’Iberville Elementary holds food drive to give back to Chamber of Commerce

D’Iberville Elementary School hosted a canned food drive so people could donate items to the D’Iberville St. Martin Chamber of Commerce’s Christmas baskets.

Today, the students helped pack up all the canned goods they’ve collected over the past month and loaded them on a truck. They collected 800 cans to fill baskets for 100 families in need.

There were a few incentives along the way to help get the kids in the giving spirit. D’Iberville Elementary School Principal Melissa Quave said, “So, we enjoy doing this because it teaches the students to give back to the community and give them an opportunity to help someone in need. We enjoy working with the community partners anytime we are able to do that. They help us in so many ways so we are always grateful whenever we can help the community as well. So, we enjoy doing that.”

This is the second year D’Iberville Elementary partnered with the chamber for this event.
