[MARCH 24, 2004]  Mount Pulaski High School students will be going door-to-door from 1 to 3 p.m. March 28 in order to collect nonperishable food items for a statewide project sponsored by the National Youth Service Day organization. FCCLA and student council members will be participating.

Ninety percent of the items will be donated to the Lincoln Food Bank and 10 percent will be taken to the Illinois FCCLA leadership meeting in Springfield on April 15.

The Illinois Association of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is the lead organization for the project in the state. The goal at the state conference is to fill a school bus with donations.

Local State Farm Insurance agent Deron Powell is coordinating State Farm's participation in the project.

So, look for drop boxes around the Mount Pulaski area to donate food. Also, your participation on March 28 will be greatly appreciated.
