BRUMC Pantry


“We just want to do a good thing for families in the community,” says Student Council President, Caden Parker. Friday, December 17th, was one of the Student Council’s incentive days, “Block Out Hunger.” For this incentive, each seminar class does their best to bring enough non-perishable canned and boxed goods to school to block out their door. After that, StuCo hosted events for the remainder of the day. Those events included: a talent show, cornhole, dodgeball, Christmas karaoke, water pong and class musical chairs. After all of the festivities, students went to various rooms to watch Christmas movies of their choice. Popcorn, sugar cookies, and pop were all provided during the movies.

The food collected was later taken to the Blue Rapids United Methodist Church to be distributed by the local food pantry. Typically, well over forty community families are served every month from both Waterville and Blue Rapids.

The incentive days are usually described by both students and staff as a lot of fun. When asked how StuCo keeps students excited for the incentives, Caden Parker said, “We listen to feedback from students to see what they liked and what they’d like to see next time.” The next incentive day will be sometime later in the 3rd nine weeks.
