The annual coin drive fundraiser for the Blaine Food Bank, typically sponsored by our BMS ASB students at this time of year, is taking on a new look this school year. The need in our community is far greater, and sadly, BMS has not had the opportunity to hold elections for their ASB as of yet, so we are working together across the school district to keep their efforts going.
Donations can be made online directly to Blaine Food Bank. If you make an online donation please add a note that it is for the school drive, so our students will be able to celebrate the results of their efforts.
Coins are still welcome as well, and can be dropped off outside our District Office during business hours. Look for the orange donation bucket on top of the filing cabinet. Also keep an eye out for other coin drop locations throughout town, coming soon.
Help us make real change by turning your spare change into meals for people in our community. Just .03 can purchase one pound of food from Feeding America. Blaine Food Bank currently has a very generous anonymous benefactor offering a $30,000 match for donations through December 20th. That’s a whole lot of buying power and a whole lot of change, and we hope you’ll join us in giving back!
