This year again, we have the opportunity to partner with the Union Gospel Mission to help stock their community food bank. Please consider donating some non-perishable food items to our Fall Food Drive. This is a tangible way for students to serve and show kindness to others in our neighbourhood. Each classroom will have a box set up to collect the food donations. Please be sure that the items have good nutrition value, the products are not past due dates, and that the packaging is intact. Examples of needed donations include: dry pasta and beans, canned fruit and vegetables, and baby formula. Monetary donations are also always welcome! Please write cheques out to The New Westminster U.G.M.
Thanks so much for supporting this worthy cause! Our drive will run from Monday September 30 until the end of the day on Thursday October 12.
