KSS students CAN make a difference

Rather than candy, some students are going to be looking for donations this Halloween

Kwalikum Secondary students are taking a stand against hunger.

The students are doing a food drive on Halloween called Halloween for Hunger.

The recent WE DAY some of the students attended in Vancouver inspired us to take up this cause initiated  by the Free the Children organization.

The group will be going door to door around Qualicum Elementary and Chartwell Halloween night but instead of asking for sweets they will ask for canned food for needy people in the community.

Everyone helping as much as they “CAN” will make the biggest difference. If students do not make it to your home you can drop food items at KSS by Wed., Nov. 2.
