Poulsbo Middle School canned food drive
Poulsbo Middle School’s canned food drive continues through April 22.

Students are collecting canned food to benefit North Kitsap Fishline. Bring non-perishable food items to the school, 2003 NE Hostmark Ave., Poulsbo. Students have set a goal to collect enough food so if it were stacked up it would be taller than the Space Needle.
