Queen Charlotte school gives generously

  • Jan. 6, 2003 8:00 a.m.

Students and staff at QC Secondary School were proud to be part of an effort last month that shattered all of our previous records for participation in the Christmas Food Hamper Drive. Donations have risen steadily each year, with a total of 671 donated items in 2000, and 958 items in 2001.
This year 1,197 non-perishable food items were brought in for distribution in our communities, with our dynamic Grade 8 class leading the way with 426 items! QCSS appreciates everyone’s support in helping us be a meaningful part of our communities’ annual outpouring of generosity. We thank all of you for giving us this opportunity to make caring and sharing a priority for our students, and a focus of our school.
Thanks to Karl Puls and Clemens Rettich for the submission.
