The Problem

8th Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive & Penny Wars Fundraiser Greenwich, CT – Friday, November 2, 2018 - To help those less fortunate than ourselves, the Greenwich High School (GHS) Roots & Shoots Club has set a goal to collect food donations and raise enough money to provide full Thanksgiving meal baskets to over 150 families in the Greenwich community.

Our Plan

The 8th Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive and Penny Wars fundraiser House competitions start Monday, November 5th and run through Friday, November 16th, 2018. Money raised from the Penny Wars fundraiser competition will help pay for fresh turkeys, butter, fruit, and vegetables for each meal basket. The GHS Cardinal Cooks program will be providing fresh baked breads for each meal basket, and volunteer students, staff, faculty, and parents will deliver baskets directly to families on Monday, November 19th. All surplus food collected will be donated to the local Neighbor to Neighbor Food Pantry.
