Christmas food bank drive

École Mother Teresa School’s Christmas food bank drive wrapped up Friday, with $310 and 1,743 food items collected, in addition to handmade cards.

Elementary and junior high classes, paired up into “family groups”, competed to donate as many items as possible on a per capita basis.

Andrea Gringhuis’ Grade 8 class ended up winning, with 277 items donated. Helping to pack up the food were, in the back row, Landon Walsh, Kyla Bancroft, food bank volunteer Gena Williamson, Keigan MacLean, Trent Tarling, and Colton Gavigan; and in the front row Karlee Racine, Kieran Bulloch, and Haley O’Connor.
