Team Lanai Cares – Cans Across the School Yard TLC knows that hunger doesn't take a break, so students are excited about next week's canned food drive contest, "Cans Across the Schoolyard." The contest is between all classes to see who can bring in the most pounds of cans during a one week period. During lunch all next week, TLC student reps will bring their class donations down to the lunch table area and weight them. Start collecting now and please send as many cans as possible. Last year, Lanai fed more than 500 families for a week. TLC wants to raise even more. We do need volunteers to help with the weighing at lunch. Please let Lisa Ely know if you are available any day of the week during lunch by emailing All cans will be delivered to SOVA Community Food & Resource Program.
