LS area theatre students collect 7,704 pounds of food for needy families through food drive

LS area theatre students collect 7,704 pounds of food for needy families through food drive

November 18, 2017

Student members of International Thespian Society (ITS) troupes from Lee's Summit High School, Lee's Summit North High School, Lee's Summit West High School and Summit Christian Academy collected approximately 7,704 pounds of canned and dry goods for Lee's Summit Social Services on Oct. 31.

The food was collected by the theatre students from the four schools as part of the Thespian Society's Trick or Treat so Kids Can Eat program. Students from the four schools participated in the drive, which has become an annual tradition. The theatre students collected around 1,400 more pounds this year than in 2016. During 2016, the three high schools received the National Cornucopia Award from Educational Theatre Association for their Lee’s Summit United Team. This award goes to the one team in the nation with the highest average collection total per troupe. 

Trick or Treat so Kids Can Eat is a national community service program for ITS-member schools to collect canned and dry goods for local charities and food banks. Hundreds of thousands of pounds of food were collected across the state and nation last year, giving theatre students the chance to demonstrate the ability to help their local community.
