Delview Secondary prepping for 24th annual food drive

Staff, students and parents at Delview Secondary are prepping for their annual Thanks For Giving food drive Oct. 13 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Students and boxes of donated food fill the gym at Delview Secondary in North Delta at last year’s Thanks For Giving food drive.

Staff, students and parents at Delview Secondary are gearing up for the school’s 24th annual Thanks For Giving food drive.

On Oct. 13 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., student teams will be canvassing North Delta to collect non-perishable food items. Residents are asked to either bag donations for pick up on the 13th or bring them to Delview before 9:00 a.m. on the 14th.

Billed as the largest single-night food drive in B.C., every year the school collects over 15,000 food items for the Surrey Food Bank and Deltassist.

Two years ago, volunteers were able set a record of 22,000 cans, and since its inception in 1992 the event has collected over 300,000 non-perishable food items.

You can also help support Delview’s Thanks for Giving food drive by spreading the word on Twitter (@delviewt4g, #DelviewT4G) and on Instagram (@delviewt4g). For more information on the food drive, visit delviewt4g.weebly.com.
