10,000 Tonight: Students from Belmont, Royal Bay, and Edward Milne will be going out into their communities to collect food donations for the Goldstream and Sooke Food Banks. Their collective goal is to gather AT LEAST 30,000 donations – either food or cash. Drivers are needed to take students on the routes, so if you’re able to spend an hour or so on a route -or two- head over to your local high school at 5:00 or later. Bring your driver’s license and insurance papers to sign in. Welcome these high schoolers if they come to your door. It’s really great to see them out in the community, working together towards a common goal. Thanks for any help you can give to help support our community.

Christmas Hamper Drive: Deadline December 22nd From December 11th until December 22nd we will be collecting food, hamper items, and/or cash donations.   Admission to the Elementary concerts and Middle School Band concert on December 20th and 21st is by donation. You can also bring donations to your child’s classroom. The Goldstream Food Bank will pick up your much needed and very much appreciated donations on December 22 and will help build the hampers for families in need.
