Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive

AXL Academy is proud to host the annual Thanksgiving Food Drive to provide Thanksgiving dinner supplies for AXL families in need. The drive will be from November 1 - 16 with each grade level being asked to bring in specific items to create a full Thanksgiving meal for families.

To receive items for Thanksgiving, please contact Emily Thomsen at or stop by the school to meet with her. Your information will be confidential and we will establish a timeline for you to receive items to celebrate Thanksgiving.

In addition to the below items from each grade, we are seeking large (grocery size) paper bags and frozen turkeys for the drive. Emily is also seeking parent volunteers to help sort and bag the items on Friday, November 17th in preparation for the pick-up.
