Windermere of Auburn, Dick Scobee Elementary seek donations in All School Food Drive

Windermere Real Estate of Auburn has joined Dick Scobee Elementary School to help kids collect food and money in competition with the other schools in the district-wide All School Food Drive.

"The kids are excited about the opportunity to compete, and we are happy to be on board to help our neighborhood school," said Nancy Colson, realtor and certified residential specialist for Windermere.

The collection drive goes through Friday.

Donations can be dropped off at Windermere's food collection barrel in the lobby, 700 M St. NE (corner of 8th and Harvey Road Northeast) during regular business hours. The office also will collect cash contributions.

Auburn schools launched its annual food drive on Feb. 21.

Community businesses – in partnership with the Auburn School District – will be contributing to the food donations until Friday. Donations will be taken at the schools.

Auburn Mountainview High School, Olympic Middle School and Hazelwood Elementary were division champions in last year's food drive.

The 2010 drive accumulated 51,680 pounds and $15,723, according to Debbie Christian, executive director of the Auburn Food Bank.
