Confederation Secondary School CHRISTMAS IS GIVING Food Drive

Confederation Secondary School will host its annual Christmas is Giving Food Drive on Thursday, November 26, 2009 from 9 am to 11 am.

In partnership with the Good Neighbour Food Bank and Capreol Lions Club, students will volunteer their time to pick up non-perishable food items around the community of Valley East , Hanmer and Capreol.

The non-perishable food items collected will be provided to two local food banks – the Good Neighbour Food Bank and the Capreol Food Bank.

Groups of student volunteers will go door-to-door and accept any donations of non-perishable food items.

Community members who will not be home on Thursday morning are invited to leave any non-perishable food items by the door for the volunteers to pick up.

“At Confederation Secondary School, we encourage responsible citizenship in our students and our community,” said Principal Mike Mirka. “The Christmas is Giving food drive supports a very worthy cause. ¬†We invite everyone to contribute and help make this year’s food drive the best ever.”
