IMS Food Drive The Annual IMS Food Drive was a huge success. This was the first year we collected cash to help buy grocery gift cards and we knocked it out of the park. All proceeds will benefit the Yuletide Hunger Program of Independence and Seven Hills. Collectively, IMS brought in 1136 canned goods and raised $1145.75. Student Council and Builders Club would like to thank all who contributed so generously to help those in need. You have definitely made the holidays a little brighter for many local families. #iPride
