Hilsman is participating in the 27th annual Can-a-thon to benefit the Athens Emergency Food Bank on Barber St. All donations stay in Clarke Co. The goal for the school is to collect at least one can per student as a total. Any homeroom that brings in over 50 cans will be eligible for a pizza or breakfast party. Rummage through your pantries and come up with some cans.
