RHE & Live Thankfully Food Drive Continues This Week Through Nov. 16

RHE is once again partnering with Live Thankfully to feed families this Thanksgiving. With your help, we will give Thanksgiving dinners and groceries to families in need. These families are adopted through our school and other FWISD schools. Last year, we were able to give 2,500 bags of groceries along with Thanksgiving dinners to more than 600 families in need!


This is the last week of our Live Thankfully Food Drive. We encourage everyone to continue bringing items in each day this week to try and meet our goal of 5,000 items. At this point, we are well short of that goal.


The totals so far are:

Pre-K: 109 items

Kindergarten: 65 items

1st Grade: 132 items

2nd Grade: 185 items

3rd Grade: 189 items

4th Grade: 140 items

5th Grade: 222 items   

School Total: 1,042 items


If you ordered Live Thankfully t-shirts they will be delivered this week. We are asking that everyone wear their LT shirts Friday to show we are a community that Lives Thankfully!


Here is how you can help this year:


Contribute to Our Food Drive This Week

·      Bring non-perishable goods to school.

·      We will give incentives throughout the drive to grade levels bringing in the most items.

·      Food items to consider: canned veggies, canned soup, canned meats, boxed potatoes and stuffing, boxed macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, snack pack puddings, crackers, paper goods, etc.

·      Please no glass or breakable items.

·      Cans, plastic and boxed items will be better for bagging and transport.


Attend Party with a Purpose on Sunday, Nov. 19, at 5:30 p.m. Until Everything is Bagged and Loaded on the Trucks

·      Join our school family and those from other participating schools and businesses at Southwest Christian Preparatory Campus to bag groceries for our adopted families.
