 From now until December 17th, we are collecting food for the Vaughan Food Bank to help other people in need. We are asking for students to bring in non-perishable food items such as cans of peas, beans and soup. On December 15th, we would like families to bring a canned good donation when they come to the winter concert to help us reach our goal. Thank you for giving.

 Additional Information:

  • The food bank is located at 71 Marycroft Ave. in Woodbridge
  • It opened in 1995
  • More people need food every year
  • Some things that are needed the most are diapers, cereal and soap

Sincerely, Students at Brownridge.
