On September 19, Chattahoochee High School launched its third annual Can Bowl against their rival school Johns Creek, which is a competition to see which school can collect the most cans and toiletries. The winner will be announced at the October 7 football game between the two schools.
The can drive is sponsored by the Chattahoochee and Johns Creek FBLA and Key Club. The Future Business Leaders of America and the Key Club are both non-profit organizations that promote leadership and giving back to the community. These clubs are trying to get people involved in assisting issues that are happening in the real world. The can drive is a simple way for someone to make a contribution and help people that need it the most.
Although it is a competition, raising canned foods and toiletries is about more than winning. By raising food for those in need, students have a chance to make a significant difference to many people’s lives. By simply bringing in a couple of cans or a few toiletries, anyone can help someone that needs it the most. A single can of food can go a long way for a family that is struggling, and toiletries can help provide for those who cannot afford simple necessities. If students participate in the drive, they have the ability to influence the life of someone who needs it.
Students can donate cans or toiletries to either their math or English classes. Even though it may not seem like much, but a single can make a substantial difference in someone’s life. Until October 7, students have a chance to contribute to the can drive and make a significance difference in the community. These donations can change someone’s life for the better and every student should try to help out in any way possible.
