We are really pleased to let you all know that our first Starfish backpacks, 21 in total, were delivered October 9, in time for the Thanksgiving weekend.
At Brookswood Secondary School we gathered with the students from the Leadership Program, and their teacher Lenny Wun, and Laura d’Alva, Communication Coordinator with the Langley School District Foundation.
The students were very enthusiastic and organized as they filled the backpacks with abundant food for three days over the Thanksgiving weekend. The backpacks were supplied by Rotary Club Langley Sunrise. UCoL Youth will be keeping track and boxing the food inventory being stored at the Murrayville site.
The backpacks were loaded into Dale’s truck and delivered to Wix-Brown and Coghlan Elementary Schools.
The Principal at Wix-Brown Elementary School, Scott Johnson, extended grateful appreciation from the parents of the children receiving the backpacks.
If you wish to help with the packing, for one hour over the noon hour on Thursdays, please let Jovana in the office know (Ph: 604.530.2929). The support for this program has been very much appreciated and further donations are always welcome.
