After a week of collecting food, some families in need with children attending Meridian Elementary will be receiving some help.

"I feel the students have done a great job, especially with the economy," student council sponsor Katie Sims said. "We have plenty of food."

With Thanksgiving only days away, the student council put together food baskets after school Monday after collecting non-perishable food items.

Enough items were collected to make 12 baskets for families with students within the school.

Classes competed against one another for the opportunity to have a pajama day.

The winning class for the Kindergarten-second grade competition was Wendy Kreiger's class and Christy Stevenson's class was the third-fifth grade.

The student council is made up of students in grades three-five.
