During the 2016 – 2017 school year, ABC 12’s Marc Jacobson will once again be making the rounds to local schools encouraging both school spirit and the spirit of giving! Each Friday, Marc broadcasts live from a different school during the 5am – 7am morning news.
Participating schools collect non-perishable canned and boxed food, personal care items and monetary donations throughout the school year.
These items are then donated to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. The Food Bank keeps a running total of the donations from each school. At the end of the school year, the winner is announced and awarded the Spirit Cup during the live finale. Any school that collects 10,000 lbs or more will be invited to join in the celebration.
This is a great program that benefits the school, the Food Bank and the community all while giving the students another fun way to show.
