Hi Churchill Parents and Students,
Every winter, we run a fundraiser for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank which we lovingly call the Canley Cup. We do this because over 26,500 people use the Food Bank each week, of which 20% are children and the elderly. We partner with the Food Bank because of their purchasing power. Every $1 that we donate can buy $3 worth of food for vulnerable families.
Last year, with a combined effort from both students and parents, Churchill Secondary 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 this online donation. We can do it again and exceed that total. 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 on Day 2s. 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 contribute to supporting families around the Lower Mainland who need it.
Thank you in advance for your charitable donations,
Sir Winston Churchill Secondary's Student Council 2019-2020
