BDJMS Teen Outreach Program Holds Food Drive

Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School Teen Outreach Program collects 700 pounds of food to be donated.

During the past month, the Bennie Dover Jackson Middle School “Teen Outreach Program,” or “TOP” held a food drive to benefit others during this holiday season.  The program collected over seven hundred pounds of food and donated it to the Gemma E. Moran - United Way - Food Bank here in New London.  The students made weekly pick-ups throughout the building, and to boost support, created a competition to see what grade level could donate the most food.  Overall, the program collected seven hundred and nine items.  A congratulations goes out to the BDJMS TOP Program, and the students and staff, for their generosity this holiday season.

The BDJMS TOP Program is run by Child and Family Agency and is designed to provide students with opportunities to develop decision making skills through leadership development, health education, and role playing.
