JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Schools in Onslow County can win money by simply collecting food.

The Onslow Christmas Cheer program needs your school’s help in collecting canned goods for their holiday drive.

The school with the most donated canned goods will win 500 dollars, second place gets 250 dollars and third place 100 dollars.

Trexler middle school raised over 3000 cans in the past two weeks.

“It was a lot more than we expected and we’re just really glad to help out Onslow County,” said Trexler Middle School’s Beta Club.

The Christmas Cheer food drive will continue until December 18th, but for schools to be eligible to win the prizes their canned goods must be in by December 11th.
