The Fuel Up to Play 60 team at Betts Elementary organized the Helpful Hearts Food Drive. Students and Program Advisors worked together in organizing a two-week schoolwide food drive. Classes were challenged to collect the most non-perishable items. The two top classes then received healthy snack and an extra recess for rewards. The Fuel Up to Play 60 team then gathered all of the donated food and delivered it to disadvantaged families in the community.
