Building Hype for Cans

October 3, 2012 - This week, members of the Student Council at St. Charles College have taken their campaign about hungry people needing help to a number of elementary schools.  Now it is up to the kids to take that message to the streets and collect cans.
 
The school is trying to meet its goal of providing the Sudbury Food Bank with at least 60 thousand cans of food to help people in our community during the winter months.
 
Each year, the feeder schools (St. Bernadette, St. Raphael, Pius XII, St. Andrew, St. David, St. Paul and St. John) support the initiative by getting the younger students to assist with the canvassing and collection of non-perishable food items.
 
Last year the school collected more than 120 thousand cans.  They have been participating in an annual food drive for more than 30 years. 
 
Student Council Teacher-lead Paola Gutscher says “it brings great joy to see kids helping kids in our community and feeling a sense of pride and accomplishment in achieving and surpassing our goals each year.”
