2012 MidSun Food Drive for the Calgary Poppy Fund
This week, we will be running a food drive in support of the Calgary Poppy Fund. The fund was formed in 1927 by the Royal Canadian Legion to help veterans and their dependants who are in need. Over the years, there has been a growing need for services that rely on the poppy fund. One such service is the Veteran's Food Bank, which has been sending out more than 70 food hampers a month, compared to 50 hampers a month last year, and 25 hampers a month three years ago. The Poppy Fund also collects cash donations to help support veterans pay for their medications, and rent in emergency situations, among other things.
On Friday morning, students will all receive a poppy. Please bring in a donation for this poppy. (Suggest $2!)
Please bring in non-perishable food items TUESDAY OR WEDNESDAY.
Ideas for Non-Perishable Donations: any canned or boxed foods (due to our commitment to provide our clients with quality food we cannot accept food that is out-dated) baby formula, baby food and diapers toiletries paper products
