Washington High School Donates to Community Festival of Trees

Washington High School’s student body donated over 2,200 food items to the Community Festival of Trees at St. Peter’s United Church of Christ in Washington on Monday, Dec. 18.

The collection was organized by the WHS student council. The group of STUCO students, along with advisors Allison Graves and Samantha Loepker, delivered the food to St. Peter’s. See the picture below.

The Community Festival of Trees kicked off the first weekend in December.

Over 80 trees are decorated by various organizations and displayed at St. Peter’s United Church of Christ in Washington. Schools, churches, businesses and community groups in the area have trees represented.

A donation of one non-perishable food item under the tree is one vote for that organization’s tree. 

Food can be dropped off any time until Dec. 24 by placing it under the tree or trees you wish to support.

The times to drop off food items are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., or during the weekend when the public is invited to view the trees. The weekend hours to see the Festival of Trees are Saturdays from 3 to 7 p.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Each food item will help feed a community member and will count as a vote. All food collected will be distributed between three food pantries.

Representing the School District of Washington in the Festival of Trees are WINGS Educational Foundation, Washington High School, Washington High School Cheerleaders, Washington High School National Honor Society, Washington High School Boys Soccer Team, Washington Middle School Student Council, Washington Middle School FFA, Marthasville Elementary, Washington West Elementary third graders, South Point Elementary first-and second-graders, and Four Rivers Career Center.

Washington High School has been the winner for six consecutive years.

St. Peter’s United Church of Christ is located at the corner of Fifth and Market Streets in Washington. The address is 20 East 5th Street, Washington, MO 63090.
