Welcome to the SDMS March Madness Food Drive to help local Wethersfield families in need.
The competition tips off on February 12 and will go until February 28.

Collection boxes will be set up in the cafeteria lobby. There will also be a scoreboard in the cafeteria to track each grade’s progress.

Get ready to slam dunk some donations and help us stock the Wethersfield Food Pantry!
