Students at L.J. Alleman Fine Arts Magnet Academy held a food drive recently to donate to those in the community in need.

Mrs. Sarah Arceneaux's 8th grade English Language Arts class kicked off the drive and got the entire school involved.

After discussing nonprofits that would benefit from food donations, the school decided on the HUB Lafayette as their recipient. They also turned the drive into a friendly competition between classes to help boost donations.

Each class was given a collection box to decorate with a Thanksgiving theme.

Students on Friday presented the collected food items to the HUB Lafayette in the decorated boxes just in time for Thanksgiving.
