Badger Elementary School Holds Canned Food Drive

Mar 22nd, 2012 | By admin | Category: Education

Badger Elementary School recently received a canned food donation from Bill Handley and clients of Edward Jones in Beebe.  The school currently assists students with a backpack program sponsored through the Rice Depot. Depending on need, these students take food home on either a weekly or daily basis.  With the downturn of the economy, the Rice Depot has been unable to fulfill all the students’ needs.  Bill Handley and his assistant, Tamera Pedigo sent out letters to clients that are in the Beebe school district requesting nonperishable food donations.  The clients of Edward Jones were extremely gracious and donated enough food to fill Badger Elementary’s food pantry.  The students and faculty at Badger Elementary want to express their thanks to Bill Handley and Edward Jones of Beebe!!
