Gators Give Back

Students at Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School are surrounded by by thousands of food items collected by their school community.

October 26, 2010 - Every year at Thanksgiving, the community of Bishop Alexander Carter C.S.S. gives thanks by giving back to the community with our canned food drive. These students believe it is important, as John the Baptist said, that “the one who has food should share with him who has none." (Luke 3:11). This year, the staff and students definitely outdid themselves! They blew their goal of 2000 cans out of the water, with a final total of 5517 items of food! There was a tight competition between four homerooms, with Ms. Kozak’s class finally winning a free dress-down day with 1335 cans. Mr. McKee’s homeroom will also be sharing in the prize, as their small class of just 5 students managed to gather 1018 cans! Great fun was had by all, but more importantly, a great amount of food was donated to both the Hanmer food bank and the St. Vincent de Paul Society in Val Caron! Your generosity never ceases, Gators!
