Dear Churchill Community,
Every winter, Churchill Student Council participates in a fundraiser for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank called Canley Cup. We do this because over 8,000 people use the Food Bank each week, of which 40% are children and the elderly.We partner with the Food Bank because every $1 we donate can buy $3 worth of food for vulnerable families.
Last year, with a combined effort from both students and parents, Churchill raised over $11,000 for families in need or the equivalent of 30,000 cans of food. Parents contributed nearly a third of that number through online donations. This year more than ever, the Food Bank needs help in providing food access to those who need it as the demand for the food bank has increased by 20% during the COVID-19 pandemic. We're asking you for any donation that you can manage for families that are less fortunate than us.
If you have canned goods you would like to donate to this cause, please send them with your child to school. We value any donation of non-perishable goods. Every little bit helps our goal, and all donations are delivered to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank the day before Winter Break.
This holiday season, let's support families around the Lower Mainland who need our help. Thank you in advance for your charitable donations,
Sir Winston Churchill Secondary Student Council 2020-2021
