The students and staff of Saugeen District Senior School (SDSS) will be conducting a food drive on the morning of Saturday, December 7, from 9:00-11:30, in Saugeen Shores.
Over 200 school and community volunteers will be going door-to-door, in Port Elgin and Southampton, collecting non-perishable food items and toiletries for the local Salvation Army Food Bank, and sorting the donations at the school.
Each collection team consists of four students and an adult driver. Those who want to make a food or toiletry donation can also drop it off at the front door of SDSS, on that same day (Dec. 7) until 1:00 PM.
The food drive is modelled after a similar venture that occurs, annually, in Kincardine, called ‘Christmas Knights’. It is in its 23rd year and we wish it much success, again, this year.
Thank you to all of the local businesses, groups and individuals who have contacted the school to lend a hand. We would particularly like to thank the Cham-bettes, The Power Workers’s Union, Scott Rowland at Rowland’s Independent and Mike Berry at Giant Tiger.
“Our local food bank and our fellow citizens need our help. We live in a very generous community and we are looking forward to seeing that generosity in action on Saturday, December 7,” says Dan Weigand, Me to We Advisor, Saugeen Shares Food Drive Coordinator & Sr. Girls Volleyball Rep.
