For the fourth year the schools of Whitehorse are working together to support the Whitehorse Food Bank during our Thanksgiving Food Drive today.
Please leave bags on your door step by 6 p.m., and if we miss your house, please bring it to the food bank.
This massive effort involves hundreds of hours of volunteer commitment from students, teachers and parents.
We solicit funds, pre-deliver bags to Whitehorse residents, collect food and then sort food at the food bank.
This year we are working with the theme “Kids Helping Kids.” We know that about 45 per cent of people accessing the services of the food bank are students in our schools.
This food drive teaches that civic participation and social outreach are integral elements of a healthy society.
The food drive also give an opportunity for teachers to discuss issues of food security in our own community.
