Students double up on food drive donations

Staff writer

Students at Hillsboro Middle/High School collected cans for two food drives, one for Main Street Ministries and the other Marion County Food Bank.

Principal Clint Corby said the school typically does one food drive at a time, but was approached about both, and students have done a good job of responding in the weeks before Thanksgiving.

“Both were in need, and especially at this time of year, we thought ‘let’s see if we can really step it up and provide more than we usually do,’” he said.

He noted a significant increase in donations this year, but with the drive ending on Tuesday, final counts were not available. Collection receptacles were full Thursday afternoon.

“Hopefully we run out of room,” Corby said. “We’re filling the hallways.
