ERHS ASB Participates in Food Drive

ERHS ASB Food Drive

April 8, 2022
The Righetti High School ASB food drive will help fill the empty shelves of local families in need.

On Thursday, students donated more than 1,000 pounds of dry and canned food items to the U-Pick Food Pantry at New Life Community Church in Pismo Beach. It’s open three days a week and serves families from Oceano to Guadalupe.

The community service project, which began March 28 and wrapped up April 6, was promoted by rallies and through the spirit directorship of senior Elli Ryan, according to Warrior School Counselor Julie Utterback. The class who collected the most nonperishables will receive an In-N-Out party.

"I feel community service is very important especially today because the prices of everyday necessities are very high," said senior Ella Consorti. “If you continue to help someone else in the littlest way then why not? Being able to give back into the community in any way is one of Righetti's main priorities."

Aurey Henry, also a senior, added, "Helping our community is so important now more than ever with the stresses of today's world. Being there to support the people in our community in any way shape or form can make a big difference in just one life. We should absolutely take the opportunity to do anything we can."

U-Pick Pantry sent ASB members three dozen donuts as a "sweet" thank you. "The contribution from RHS ASB is much needed and we are truly grateful to work with such caring students,’’ according to U-Pick Pantry Volunteer Kent Utterback.
