Students at Otto H.H. Petersen Elementary in Scappoose helped bring in 4,307 cans of food during their annual food drive competition, which pits classes against each other for a worthy cause.

The food drive ended last month with Marilyn Huffman's fifth-grade class (pictured above) dominating the charity event with 1,204 cans.

Fifth graders came out in full force during the food drive. In second was Ronda Kienlen's fifth-grade class with 977 cans and third was Courtney Scott's fifth-grade class with 599 donated cans.
