FARMINGTON — Members of the Country Club Elementary School Student Council volunteered at the ECHO Food Bank in Farmington on Jan. 25.

The group of 18 students, along with club sponsors Dena Leboeuf and Stephanie Smetak, organized a food drive in November. The drive collected more than 300 pounds of food for ECHO.

While at the food bank, students were tasked with separating canned goods, organizing pallets and filling bags with food for needy families.

This was the first year a student council has operated at Country Club Elementary School.

Members of the student council hope to volunteer at the ECHO Food Bank one more time before the end of the school year.
