St. Charles College Student Council and Geoffrey Lougheed, Chair of the Sudbury Food Bank along with the St. Charles College students load some of the 61,000 food items on to a truck destined for the Sudbury Food Bank. In just a little less than two weeks the St. Charles College “Can Dave Mayes Food Drive” collected over 60,000 food items... the largest donation ever made by a single school.

October 31, 2007 - St. Charles College wrapped up its “Can Dave Mayes” food drive on October 29 by smashing its target goal of 25,000 cans with an amazing total of 61,000 food items! After tireless campaigning by the St. Charles College students and a great deal of support from Big Daddy Radio 103.9, Bell and Sudbury Transit the food drive went over the top on the final days of the campaign by some 36,000 food items and donations combined.

Patty Mardero, Principal of St. Charles College is ecstatic with the efforts of her students and the overwhelming response of the Sudbury community with respect to the recent food drive. “This is the largest donation ever made by a single school in the 20-year history of the Banque d’aliments Sudbury Food Bank,” stated Mardero. “Hundreds of people in the Greater Sudbury community will be helped through the incredible endeavours of all the
St. Charles College students and our event partners.”

St. Charles College would like to thank Big Daddy Radio 103.9, Bell, Sudbury Transit and the citizens of Greater Sudbury for their support and dedication in helping to make this food drive such a tremendous success.
