Thanksgiving Food Drive

From Tuesday, November 13 through Tuesday, November 20, Marin Academy's Center for Community Action will be holding MA's annual Thanksgiving Food Drive and we need everyone's help to reach our goal of 3,000 pounds of food and 75 turkeys which will be donated to SF-Marin Food Bank, St. Vincent de Paul, and Next Generation Scholars.

How You Can Help

  • November 13 through 20: Drop off non-perishable food items.
  • Advising Competition: Tuesday, November 13: Students will be participating in a competition between advising groups. Each advising group should bring their class assigned items to advisory on Tuesday, November 13 to kick off the food drive. A photo of the advisory with items will determine the winners!
