In the heart of Ball High School, a spirit of compassion stirs as Channel 13, National Honors Society, ARK, and the Key Club united to end hunger on the island by holding the annual community wide “Share Your Holidays” food drive. Students from Ball High School, Central Middle School, Weis Middle School, LA Morgan Elementary, and Rosenberg Elementary gathered great quantities of food items to donate to the cause.

The number of food items donated tells a compelling story of empathy and shows the immense generosity of those who donated and rallied behind the cause. The display of support represents meals provided, families nourished, and a community that refuses to ignore the issue of hunger.

With the rallying spirits of Ball High Schools Tornettes, Cheer team, Hispanic Dance Band, and Choir, and Central Middle School Dancing Dolls behind them, the Share Your Holidays food drive raised $32,205.25 in monetary donations and a bit over 20,00 pounds of food. Bur not only  food was collected. Generous donors also gave items like toilet paper, diapers, soap, and other household necessities. A big thank you to the city of Galveston and ball High for rallying to help those less fortunate.
