 Lundquist Lovies donate Thanksgiving dinner to Kiwanis Food Pantry

Students, faculty and families provide an entire Thanksgiving meal to Montville Kiwanis Food Pantry

At Cedar Hill Elementary School in Towaco, New Jersey, caring for community is a day to day activity. Collectively as a student body, as well as class by class, the 2016 National School of Character incorporates respect and kindness in each lesson.

On Wednesday, November 23, 2016, the kindergarten class of Dr. Cathy Lundquist provided an entire Thanksgiving meal to the Montville Kiwanis Food Pantry.

Known as the Lundquist Lovies, the kindergarteners donated stuffing, potatoes, cranberries, peas, corn and apple pie. School Counselor Heather Praml donated the turkey.

“There was so much food,” said parent volunteer Terry Becker. “The donations filled the entire back seat of my Honda Pilot.”

After the students loaded Becker’s car with food and goodies, they paused for a photo in front of Cedar Hill with their teacher, Dr. Lundquist.

Two Montville Township Public Schools were among only sixty-seven in the United States of America to be named 2016 National Schools of Character by Character.org. Cedar Hill in Towaco is one, and Woodmont Elementary School in Pine Brook is the other.
