    ANNUAL LEADERSHIP 11 CANNED FOOD DRIVE

    Dec 2, 2019

    The annual food drive at Killarney will begin this week and will run until December 17. The Leadership 11 class would like to briefly speak with your classes during block 1-2 on Tuesday to explain how they will be collecting donations this year. If it is not a convenient time for you, please let them know a time that works.

    This year, the students want to encourage monetary donations so that the food bank can purchase in bulk and maximize the number of people in need that they can help. As usual, each class will be competing for a pizza party, however this year we will use a point system where the students will be awarded 1 point for each food item and 2 points for every dollar donated. These points will be collected for the class that they have during block 1-2. In addition, students will receive a re-usable metal bubble tea straw if they make a donation of $5 or more(while supplies last).

    The Leadership students will also have a daily booth set up in the front hall to collect food items so that students can drop off any bulky donations on their way into the school in the morning. 

    Finally, Kristin Mattock’s class is currently featured on the VSB website for a PSA that they created last year for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Here is a link to their PSA which outlines best foods to donate. Please feel free to share this video with your classes!

    Kelsey Bemister on behalf of the Leadership 11 class
