• Demon Pantry
     

    About 1,700 students make up the RJR student-body (in a non-Covid world).  Approximately 50% of them qualify for a free or reduced price lunch.   That represents more than 800 Reynolds students!  Sadly, that means that some students show up not having had anything to eat since they left school the day before.  To combat this, a group of parent volunteers has teamed up with the Second Harvest Food Bank and Centenary United Methodist Church to engage RJR students, clubs, staff and families in supporting the Demon Pantry (pictured above).  This pantry has food for such students.  It also has toiletries for needy students. 

    The reason for offering toiletries: a female student was found trying to steal a roll of toilet tissue from the school.  When asked why, her answer was:  "my family can't afford toilet tissue."
