Turkey Trot/Make a Difference Day

Saturday October 27th is national “MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY” Enders-Salk students will be participating in our 24th annual Turkey Trot and Food Drive in support of make a difference day.

This event will take place on Monday, November 5th.  Each student has been asked to bring a canned good, boxed item or paper product donation to school.  These essential items will be given to the WACO organization and District 54 food pantry.  They distribute baskets to needy families for Thanksgiving and the holiday season.

The ambassadors will be placing a Turkey Trot box outside your classroom the week of October 22nd.

Pantry items can be brought in starting October 22nd – November 5th and placed in the turkey trot box in your classroom.   We are trying to break our last year’s record of 1874 items collected, with 67% of our students and staff participating in this donation.

In conjunction with the food drive, we will hold the Turkey Trot on Monday, November 5th.  In this event students are eligible for prizes based on who comes closest to their estimated run time in the ½ mile run.
