SMHS Breaks Their Canned Food Drive World Record!

Happy Bearcats Beating Canned Food Drive Record
San Mateo High students conducted their annual holiday food drive and broke their world record by collecting 105,000 pounds of food and continuing their tradition of being one of the largest food drives in the country!  All donations went to the Samaritan House in San Mateo and Second Harvest Food Bank. We are so proud of our spirited, dedicated and community-minded Bearcats. We are thankful to the following groups and people who helped us feed our community this holiday. They are: the SMUHSD Adult School (collected SO MANY cans!), the San Mateo and Foster City Rotary Clubs who donated generously, the Local Lions Club Chapter, Congressperson Jackie Speier, the entire SMHS STAFFULTY, SMHS community (ALL students, parents and alumni!), Charlie Royce (CFD webmaster), retired Bearcat teacher Debby Martin who supervised ALL of the money collections, Orthodontics of San Mateo, our North Central neighbors, City partners, local media reporters who helped to get the word out, Samaritan House, 2nd Harvest Food Bank, and of course, our local grocery stores and drug stores that hosted food collection dates! Thank you all for your generosity!
