From October 16th through November 16th, Sibley students collected and donated 968 food items for those in need. This operation, well known as Nelson's "Stuff-A-Truck" Food Drive, is a community effort to better the lives of those less fortunate this upcoming holiday season. On November 20th, all donations will be "stuffed" into a semi-truck and delivered to the Albert Lea Food Shelf. Thank you Sibley students and families for your donation!
