The 39th Annual ABC13 Share Your Holidays food drive at Ball High School on Friday, Dec. 6, was a huge success.

Members of the Ball High School band, cheerleaders, Tornettes, Ballet Folklorico, as well as the Parker Elementary School Elite students, entertained the public and Share Your Holidays community partners as they dropped off nonperishable food and monetary donations that benefited the Galveston County Food Bank.

A total of 25,603 pounds of food and more than $1,000 in monetary contributions were collected by the end of the day.

Ron Crumedy, associate vice president for student services at Galveston College, Shelia Fields, second year coordinator for the Galveston College Nursing program, and Galveston College students Kyle Hendrix, Justin Clary, Anastasia Venegas, Eva Rios and Iraida Tzoy joined community members, Ball High School students and students from throughout Galveston in volunteering at the event.

The food will be distributed by the Galveston County Food Bank to local families in need during the holiday season.

Mike Dudas, media arts coach at Ball High School, is the coordinator for Share Your Holidays-Galveston. Robyn R. Bushong serves as community partners/publicity coordinator.
