BCMS Student Council organizes food drive for families-in-need

Bala Cynwyd's Student Council recently organized a school-wide holiday food drive as the Knights rallied together in a good-spirited competition to collect an assortment of food and hygiene products for the Ardmore Food Pantry. When the collections were finally complete, it was Mr. Ryan's sixth grade class who ultimately amassed the most items for those-in-need.

The latest American Community Survey conducted by the United States Census Bureau showed that of the almost 13,000 people in Ardmore, 10.23% are living in poverty. The Ardmore Food Pantry currently serves 7%-10% of the more than 1,300 people noted in the US Census who need assistance with feeding their families and providing basic toiletry and hygiene needs.
