• Timberland's National Honor Society held a turkey drive before Thanksgiving to benefit No Hunger Holiday and local families in need. Timberland students, assisted by South Middle, Boone Trail, and Stone Creek families collected 196 turkeys in the effort. A special shout out to Mrs. Baltz, Mr. Baltz and Mr. Andrzejewski’s Academic Intervention classes for raising the most money, Ms. Lisa Dailey in the cafeteria for storing turkeys, and Schnucks in Wentzville for a discount.

    The turkeys went to No Hunger Holiday, a non-profit program that works to put food on the tables of families in need. The program was started in 1990 for St. Charles County families and has expanded to include Lincoln, Warren, Montgomery and St. Louis County families as well. According to their website, the organization will help feed 3,000 families this Thanksgiving. Nine years ago, No Hunger Holiday started promoting the competition among area high schools to encourage young people to get involved in the effort. On November 20, over 2,600 turkeys were collected by students at local high schools.
