Lehman-Jackson Elementary School students and staff recently donated boxes of food to the Back Mountain Food Pantry. The goal was for each class to donate 100 cans of food for the celebration of the 100th day of school. The students were very generous and far exceeded their goal. The Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA) also donated money to the food pantry. The Back Mountain Food Pantry has provided food for residents in the Dallas and Lake-Lehman School Districts since 1977 and has seen an increase in the number of families needing assistance. Assisting in packaging the food are, from left, Mrs. Doreen Johnson, sixth-grade teacher; Sahara Carr, Raven Moore, Carly Souder, Liam O’Brien, Tyler Savitski and Carol Eyet, Back Mountain Food Pantry manager.
