Each November, the staff of Quincy Public Schools gathers at Quincy’s Tirrell Room to see old friends, enjoy great food and music, win prizes, and most importantly, donate a minimum of 4 non-perishable food items, per person, to fill Quincy’s Food Pantries for the holiday season. This year, due to COVID, there was no gathering at the Tirrell Room. However, the Fall Gathering was not cancelled. As a substitute, it was redesigned for the safety of all staff and took place in each individual school building. Building staff, who donated non-perishable food items, were entered into a raffle to win exciting prizes (gift certificates, lottery tickets, candy, QPS football tickets, etc.). 175 boxes of food were collected and donated to Quincy’s local food pantries. Thank you Quincy Public Schools employees for making a difference and helping to feed those in need at this time! Special thanks to Quincy’s newest car wash, ScrubaDub, for donating $1,000.00 to the Quincy School ~ Community Partnership to buy non-perishable food items for Quincy’s Food Pantries.
