The members of the Goshen High School Interact Club recently conducted a school-wide food drive and collected more than 2,100 food items for the Goshen Food Pantry and Youth Ending Hunger Club.

Several classes joined in the three-week effort to fight it out for a pizza party by collecting the most nonperishable food items. The classes of Science Teacher Patricia Gaer and English Teacher Marlin Maduras emerged as heavy hitters, with students in Mr. Maduras’ period 6 class claiming victory over Ms. Gaer’s period 1 class.
