The students of North Addington Education Centre suited up on October 31st in their Campbell’s Soup Costumes, to collect items for the food bank.
About ten secondary students were spread out between Flinton, Northbrook, and Cloyne to collect non-perishable food items, instead of tricking or treating for candy. The students are not strangers to supporting the community who supports them.
This is the eighth year for the very successful event. We visited as many households as possible, but we know that some houses were missed- especially those on back roads, or not in a very central area. If you have food that you would like for us to pick up, please call Candice Bovard throughout the week at 613-336-8991.
On behalf of students and staff, the principal, James Bonham-Carter, would like to thank the community for their contributions to our food drive efforts over the years: “It’s so great to see how everyone takes care of each other. Teaching children academics is only one part of the bigger picture; we need to teach them how to be good people too. A big thank you to the community for investing in our children”.
Items can also be dropped off at North Addington, in the main office.
