Vejar Elementary School hosted a canned food drive for needy families during the week of December 16.
Fifth graders Faith Renova, Angela Barrientos and Annie Liang worked diligently organizing the event to benefit the Walnut Food Bank.
"I want to help the homeless have all the things that we have," said Faith Renova.
Principal Jennifer De Anda reported that the drive was a success with over 16 boxes of canned goods collected."We've been getting a lot of cans. I am happy that Vejar has been able to help the homeless," Renova added.
