Willowbrook Food Pantry Gets a Truckload of HOPE from Edy Ridge School!
In December, Edy Ridge School kids stood united to help raise food for a local Sherwood food bank. Working together, the wolves helped "Stuff the Truck" full of all kinds of food from cereal boxes, peanut butter, caned foods, pastas and more.
Each day as donations came in, the cans in the school and the bed of the truck would fill - before your eyes, it was clear to see the big difference these kids were making. By spreading the work, generous donations and a daily commitment, the kids were well on their way to filler' up for the food bank... And that's just what they did! When we heard from the Willowbrook food pantry (Located on Edy Road in Sherwood), they were very grateful for the generous donations the kids brought in. With a full truckload consisting of over 1,000 items, their guess was that they raised close to 3000 pounds of food!
New Totes Help Stuff the Truck
Bright ideas are abundant at Edy Ridge, thanks to creative minds we came up with the idea of totes on wheels to help efforts of collecting goods for drives. A quick call to Pride Disposal Service in Sherwood and they were happy to offer a generous donation of 4 new recycle bins to help support the schools drive and Stuff the Truck's community service mission.
Our good friends over at PDX Wraps in Sherwood are the creative masterminds behind the "hot wheel" design and wrapped up those totes in a flash to match. "Special Thanks" to our community partners, because of you we all benefit from your participation and sincerely appreciate your support!

Thank you to all the Edy Ridge Wolves who donated cans and boxes of food to help families in the Sherwood area. We did "Stuff the Truck", and boxes and boxes of your donated supplies were delivered to the Willowbrook Food Pantry right here in Sherwood. A special Thanks to Jason and Amber Gardner for donating the use of their cool truck, and to Kambri McDonald for riding shotgun, making sure the principal didn’t get too happy with the hot rod.
Congratulations EDY RIDGE KIDS
Your efforts provided a truckload of hope to others and helped drive out hunger in your community! Thank you Edy Ridge Kids!!!
