North Addington Education Centre | Nov 09, 2016
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. For the first time ever, items were collected in Denbigh for the Denbigh Food Bank.
About ten secondary students spread out between Flinton, Northbrook, Cloyne, and Denbigh 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 sixth year for the very successful event. We visited as many households as possible, but we know that some houses were missed. 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, Angela Salmond, would like to thank the community for their contributions to our food drive efforts over the years.
“I had a feeling of tremendous pride when a student had his mom drive him to my home to collect items. He was so polite - a true ambassador for this community. Thank you for helping show our students how important it is to take care of one another”.
NAEC students were not able to reach as many Flinton houses as they have in previous years. They will be coming around on Friday, November 18th, from 5:00-8:00pm, to collect any items that were missed on Hallowe’en night.
They will be wearing their soup costumes.
