As part of the recently announced School Spirit Challenge, Erskine Academy has announced access to a virtual food drive. Interested parties are encouraged to visit https://www.gsfb.org/donate/vfd/550 to “shop” online for food products or to make a financial donation to Good Shepherd on behalf of Erskine Academy. Virtual contributions made by October 28, 2016, will be applied towards Erskine Academy’s competition with seven other Maine high schools vying to become School Spirit Champion.
For competition purposes, every dollar sent – virtually, by mail, or brought to the school – is “weighed” as five pounds of food. More importantly, Good Shepherd’s ability to purchase food wholesale assures that every dollar raised buys five pounds of food. Therefore, every gift received is leveraged for maximum benefit. Those residing in the vicinity of Erskine Academy are encouraged to participate in the school’s “Fill the Bus!” campaign by donating redeemable cans and bottles through October 14. Bottles and cans can be dropped off by the bus on the school’s front lawn and will be added to the food and fund campaign.
