Richmond Ave School Wins Lite Rock/Miss America Food Drive Contest
The Atlantic City elementary school won our contest to collect the most non-perishable food for the Atlantic City Rescue Mission by asking students to "Fill the Boat" in the school lobby.
The students responded to the appeal to "Show Us Your Cans" with a large collection of non-perishable food for the ACRM!
Richmond Avenue School wins a special appearance next week by the the new 2016 Miss America. The student who collected the most food will also win four tickets to the Miss America finals Sunday night at Boardwalk Hall.
Today I will accompany some of the Miss America contestants to Richmond Avenue School to pick up the food and deliver and load it in to the pantry of the Atlantic City Rescue Mission, where it will be used to help with the 600 meals they serve daily.
Special thanks to Big Mountain Imaging for providing a truck big enough for our collection and for their help with signs for this year's Miss America competition.
Congratulations to the Richmond Avenue Stingrays for winning the Lite Rock/ Miss America Serves Food Drive and thanks to all donated!
