Riverdale High JROTC Gives Back to the Community

RiverdaleHSFoodDriveThe Riverdale High School Air Force Junior ROTC, led by senior aerospace science instructor Lt. Col. Jerry Brumfield, has made it a priority to give back to the community this holiday season.

Last month, the JROTC led a school-wide food drive for the Thanksgiving holiday. The entire campus, including students, faculty, and staff, all came together to collect over 450 food items over a two week period. Items collected were donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank on November 21 so that they could be delivered to needy families in time for Thanksgiving.

For the upcoming Christmas holiday, the JROTC group led another school-wide drive, this time for toys to donate to Children’s Hospital. On December 12, the group delivered more than 200 toys to the hospital.
