The annual Canned Food Drive at Academy has ended. Year after year, the number of cans increases, surpassing the number of cans from the year before. Hundreds of students bring in thousands of cans to donate to the homeless in exchange for extra credit. Every year, Student Government has done an outstanding job counting and organizing thousands of cans . In 2016, the Academy of American Studies had the largest amount of donations in the entire borough of Queens. This year, Academy collected 6,429 cans, surpassing the 2016 record by 4,200. Great job, Academy!!!
