The 2022 results are in, and the clear winner is the Sun Prairie Food Pantry, and all those who use it as a resource! The grand total from all 10 elementary schools in food and cash is the equivalent of 34,758 pounds of food. Specifically, the 10 Sun Prairie elementary schools collected over five tons of food and almost $2,800 in cash donations.
In keeping with tradition, Bank of Sun Prairie awarded a $1,000 cash prize to the top school. This year, the school with the highest donation per student was Horizon! All other schools were eligible for a chance to win a $500 cash prize. The three schools drawn this year were Westside, Creekside, and Royal Oaks.
Mark Thompson, head of Sun Prairie Food Pantry stated, “We love partnering with our sponsor, Bank of Sun Prairie, and the 10 elementary schools. So many people benefit from this effort. It’s not only those using the food pantry, it’s a tangible way for the kids to give back and feel a sense of community. Finally, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention our sincerest gratitude to the school faculty and staff. None of this could happen without them!”
