Our View: October busy month for CFHS

October is always a busy month: Fall sports seasons are wrapping up, the first quarter has come to a close, and, of course, the Food Drive is well under way.

To top it all off, The Storytellers Campaign also started during October and is gaining steam as November looms.

The Food Drive is going well, and with multiple opportunities to bring in food, we will surely reach our goal of 25,000 pounds of food by Nov. 11. Remember you can donate food to clear parking tickets, library fines and detention. Also, bring your younger siblings or kids you babysit to Trunk or Treat on Oct. 29 from 5:30-7:30 and a canned food or monetary donation.  It’s another opportunity to Trick-or-Treat, and it supports the Food Drive.

On Oct. 31, bring a donation to school, and you can wear a costume. Who knew supporting a cause could be so much fun?

For those who don’t know much about the The Storytellers, it’s a campaign affiliated with To Write Love On Her Arms that raises awareness about mental health, and it provides a community for people struggling with depression, addiction, eating disorders, self-harm and other mental health issues.

In November, bracelets will go on sale for $5 in the lobby before and after school, and in the cafeteria during lunch shifts. The first event will be held October 29-31 during lunch shifts.  Come down to the cafeteria to get you picture taken with a sign of your biggest fear and your greatest dream, and donate $1 to the cause.

It may seem like we have a lot on our plates, but both the Food Drive and The Storytellers are very important causes, and our support of both will benefit people here at Cedar Falls High School and in the community. Great job, CF!
