Since Thanksgiving students and staff at Abington High School have collected and organized thousands of cans of food to help families throughout the township over the holidays. Abington Key Clubbers sorted and packed all of the cans to donate to families in the area and to New Life Presbyterian Church’s food bank. Key Club also raised funds through pretzel sales in order to buy WuUNHyV, SLHV, VWuIfiQJ DQG fresh vegetables so that 12 families in need could have a nice Christmas dinner. Last week Key COuE RIfiFHUV DQG DGYLVRUV spent the day traveling around Abington hand delivering food to each family. This year the high school collected and distributed more cans than ever before and made a big impact in the community.
