Veterans Middle School Teams-Up with BP

RGCCISD Press Release
VETERANS MIDDLE SCHOOL – Veterans Middle School students and staff worked together with the Border Patrol in a collaborative effort to give back to the community by holding a Canned Food Drive at VMS. Students donated 2000 canned goods in a one week time period during the month of September. The winning classroom with the most donated canned goods was Mrs. Mindy Barrera’s homeroom with 178 cans of food that were donated. Due to the community service efforts of the students at VMS, their generosity will help feed the families of the Rio Grande Valley Food Bank. Pictured above are some VMS students, Border Patrol representatives, Mrs. Maricela O. Garcia (VMS Principal), and Mrs. Laura Reyes (VMS Student Council Sponsor).
