Webster Students Spread Kindness During Peanut Butter Drive for Urbandale Food Pantry

At Webster Elementary, Mr. Maertens’ fifth grade students celebrated kindness month with a peanut butter drive. Students created social media advertisements, promoted their drive during morning announcements, wrote persuasive essays, and presented to multiple grade levels about why students, families, and staff should donate. The fifth graders collected over 300 jars of peanut butter for those in need, and helped box the jars up at the Urbandale Food Pantry. Before bringing the donations to the food pantry, the fifth grade students added a special message on top of each jar stating, “We ‘heart’ U” with a drawing of a heart. Great work by Webster students showing kindness to those in need in our community! #WebsterPride
