Recently, the Business Professional of America and Key Club conducted its annual food drive to benefit the Clay County Food Pantry.

Students in each first-hour class collected canned goods and/or money and the winning class will receive breakfast made by member of the BPA and Key Club.

The probability and statistics math class, taught by Lindsey Rost, won and the U.S. History class of Josh Trout placed second.

"In total, the students donated $268.50, and lots of canned goods." Beth Moody the Northview BPA sponsor told The Brazil Times. "The collection lasts for one week and has been going on for the past 10 to 15 years."

There are a combined total of 40 students in the two clubs.

"The BPA and Key Club have been collecting since we were downtown at the old Northview," she said. "The students saw the need in our community and wanted to help out."

Students used to donate food baskets to names that they received from the county.

"Many year ago we purchased ham, turkey, milk, potatoes, and bread to add to the canned goods that the students donated," Moody said. "When the Food Pantry began we decided to donate to them instead.

The breakfast is used as a way to encourage students to bring in donation items.

"The students that won will receive the breakfast made by the two clubs," Moody said.

Rost's class will receive a meal of scrambled eggs, sausage, rolls and milk/ juice the day today.
