In February 2012, the first grade class organized a school-wide "Share the Love Food Drive" in collaboration with the Food Bank for Larimer County. With the help of the entire Loveland Classical Schools community, we collected over 500 pounds of food!
This food drive demonstrated that the best way to learn virtues like service is to actually participate in activities that support those virtues. The first grade classes were inspired to make this a school-wide event and worked hard to advertise the drive, collect the cans, and even help pack them up.
Our hope is that future first grade classes will be motivated to set up their own service projects to continue the tradition of a food drive.
