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.
