In this year’s canned food drive, the school exceeded student council’s goal of 100,009 cans by 8,204 cans. However, ten days before the end of the drive, the can total was at 5,000, according to Jeffrey Mathew, student body president. After Mathew made a “call to action” on the PA system on Dec. 15, the school raised approximately 103,213 cans in ten days.
