Food Drive

Harvest of Love Food Drive

Annually, the Kilmer K-Kids work with our local Kiwanis Club and Tri-Lakes Cares to collect food that benefits needy families in the Tri-Lakes area. 

When: Oct. 3 - 31

What: Non-perishable food items or personal hygiene products

Suggested items include: cereal, oatmeal, pancake mix, syrup, canned meats, canned fruit, canned vegetables, canned meals/soups, baking supplies, boxed food items, even personal hygiene items.  Keep in mind that we are approaching the holidays, so items that would help make a holiday meal are in great demand.

Cash Donation: If you prefer to make a monetary contribution, checks should be made payable to Tri-Lakes Cares with Food Drive in the memo portion.

This year we are trying something new. In the past we have had a friendly competition to see which classroom brings in the most food.  This year we are having a “Choose Your Favorite “ theme each week in which students vote for their favorite by putting their donated food items in the box of their choice. Here are the themes:

October 3-9 Favorite Disney Movie -- Toy Story, Lion King, or Aladdin

October 10-16 Favorite Super Heroes -- Marvel Avengers or DC Justice League

October 17-23 Favorite Star Wars Character -- Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker

October 24-31 Favorite Pet -- Dogs or Cats


Please send in those non-perishable items (especially canned and boxed items) and vote for/support your favorite each week.  Thank you for supporting us in this worthy cause.
