On Thursday, Oct. 18, Saline Middle School students showed the community how much they truly care. 

Between Oct. 10-18, SMS students engaged in a University of Michigan vs. Michigan State University Food Drive. Students across the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade levels all donated food and health items. Depending on which team they support, some donated for the U of M side while others supported MSU side.

Frisbee Moving, a moving and storage company out of Ann Arbor, donated their time and trucks to the venture. On Oct. 18, the official donation day, Frisbee Moving brought the University of Michigan equipment truck to school. When the students walked aboard, they placed their donations into the Wolverines or Spartans bins.  Parent volunteers counted the donations and kept tallies along the way. 

Frisbee Moving will sprt the items and deliver them to Saline Social Services during the week of Oct. 22.  

The final results of the Saline Middle Schoool Food Drive include a grand total of over 3,000 items donated to Saline Social Services. The University of Michigan supporters easily won the spirited competition over Michigan State University supporters. 

All in all, the yearly SMS Food Drive continues to assist the community of Saline. It’s obvious that there are students in Saline that truly care about the well being of others.
