Fairview Elementary students collected canned food Oct. 14 to 18 for the 2013 Make a Difference Food Drive for the Food Bank of Northeast and Central Missouri. Our 4th and 5th grade Student Council members organized the drive at our school. We collected a total of 2,669 items. This was 900 items more than last year!
