Hi everyone, I’m Vicky Ly, this year’s Milpitas High School Associated Student Body (ASB) President and Jack Emery District Coordinator!
The Jack Emery drive is a food and money drive where all the schools work together to raise money for our local Milpitas Food Pantry. The Jack Emery drive will be going on from November 7 - December 9, so keep an eye out for any non-perishable goods in your home! Our theme for the drive is comm-UNITY, and our district goal is to bring together our schools and Milpitas comm-UNITY through the Jack Emery Drive!
This drive is so important because it helps the pantry and those in need, and it also unifies our schools as well. It’s a time where we bring the entire Milpitas community together for a great cause. To kick our drive, we hosted our Jack Emery kick-off brunch in person! All the school sites and some members of our Milpitas Unified District got together at Milpitas High to kick off our drive.
I love that I get to coordinate the drive because I have the opportunity to be involved in something as impactful as the Jack Emery Drive as a high school student. Last year, I led the Milpitas High drive, and we were able to raise 48,000 cans (with $1 = 2 cans), far exceeding our goal of 22,000. This year, I will be overseeing the drive for the district and helping the school sites with their drives! I’m excited to see how well we’re going to do this Jack Emery season. I'm rooting for Gavin Heraldo, the lead for the MHS drive, to surpass the total amount of cans that were donated last year :)
