Our elementary school does a luncheon for teachers and staff as part of Teacher Appreciation Week / Acts of Kindness Week. HERE is a post about what we do all week from last year. We did basically the same thing this year except we did a food drive for BackPack Buddies instead of a coat drive. BackPack Buddies is a program in our county that provides healthy and easy-to-open food for needy children over the weekend when they otherwise might not have food to eat. It's such a great program and benefits over 500 children in our county schools! We had a very successful food drive and it was so rewarding to help fill up their pantry! Here are the collection boxes I made for the drive:
We had the luncheon catered by an awesome local restaurant and had chicken salad sandwiches, club sandwiches, pasta salad, broccoli salad, chips, & brownies. For the decorations, I used all pink tablecloths, pink tissue paper balls & pink lantern balls hung from the ceiling, 2 orchids in pink pots (that I gave to teachers afterwards), & a pink "Thank You" banner I made with my Silhouette. It was a great week! Thanks to all our teachers and staff! We appreciate how hard you work for our kids!
