The Beta Club of Shawnee High School sponsored a canned food drive for the month of November. Staff and Pre-K through 12th grade students, as well as others, donated a sizable amount of canned food. Some of the donations will be given to the Grand Tower Food Pantry. The other donations will be shared with our Giving Tree families. We are proud to say this is the largest donation ever since the inception of the food drive! Shawnee #84 thanks everyone involved who helped make this food drive a success.
