It all adds up
More than 3,000 cans of food were collected during a recent two-week drive at Wyman School. The food was used to help fill about a dozen baskets for needy within the community with the remainder going to the Westbay Community Action Marketplace. Acting Principal Neil Marcaccio said the drive started as a competitive venture but soon evolved into a math lesson as well as an understanding of community needs. As it turned out, the class with the highest ratio of donated cans per student – it was a sixth grade class – won a breakfast, which Marcaccio cooked. Scrambled eggs, chocolate pancakes and juice were served up by the principal with help from parents. As Wyman is an Alan Shawn Feinstein School, the cans donated will be matched with $1 each for use by the school.
