During the week, 1,074 cans were collected and given to the Leesburg Food Bank. The Jr. Beta Club is an honor society with a motto “Let us lead by serving others.” This was the seventh canned good drive that Carver Middle School has held during the month of November. Don Diamet, from the Leesburg Food Bank, said that this came at just the right moment because the shelves were empty at the food bank.
