Four RUSD high schools are at war. But, don’t worry, it’s all for a good cause!
On Dec. 16, Case, Horlick, Park and The R.E.A.L. School battled in the first-ever COVID Canned Food Wars. For one day, each school was tasked with collecting as many canned goods as possible. The donations were weighed and tallied and a winner was named!
Congratulations to Case High School! Case raised 4,039.6 pounds of food out of a total of 11,695 lbs! All the food will go to The Hospitality Center of Racine.
Our awesome friends at the TMJ4 morning show announced the winner this morning in the video below.
This District-wide canned food drive competition was put together by Horlick High School student government members. Their goal was to create a sense of togetherness, community and friendly competition during these trying times.
“This year’s motto in Student Government is In This Together, and the Covid Canned Food Wars is an opportunity to demonstrate we are all in this together. Once the idea was created, staff and students from each participating school diligently worked to make this event possible,” said Lizzy Hanstedt, Horlick student.
All the canned goods will go to a local food bank of the winning school’s choice.
