The Upper Township Middle School Student Council collected nearly 1,000 items when it wrapped up its food drive Friday for The Branches Outreach Center in Rio Grande. The Branches creates food baskets for families in need for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Employees from Johnson’s Popcorn assisted the district in transporting the donations. The Student Council will sponsor a Powder Puff flag football game from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Nov. 22 and is requesting food and monetary donations to further help The Branches.
