A Leadership Class at L.V. Rogers Secondary School is helping to raise funds for the Nelson Food Cupboard

Nelson students take a leadership role

This Christmas, Grade 9/10 Leadership Class at L.V. Rogers Secondary School will be doing its annual food drive.

This Christmas, Ms. Martin’s Grade 9/10 Leadership Class at L.V. Rogers Secondary School  will be doing its annual food drive for the Nelson Food Cupboard.

The leadership class will be delivering decorated empty food hampers to every classroom at LVR for the students to contribute non-perishable items.

To motivate the students to give, there will be a prize for the class who collects the most food items.

A list is posted of the most desirable, nutritious options to donate to make giving a little easier.

Also a candy-grams event within LVR has been planned to raise money for a cash donation to the Nelson Food Cupboard.

If you are also willing to make a non-perishable food donation or a money donation through the school’s food drive, feel free to drop off a donation at the LVR office.

The leadership group is also currently working on raising $500 for medical care and medical kits through Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR).

CLWR is a non-profit organization that provides emergency relief, medical care and supplies, education for community development and sustainability practices.

The class organized two bake sales at LVR and hosted an  information table with Christmas baking at Nelson’s Credit Union on December 4.

Decorated donation jars have also been placed at local business counters.

Anyone interested in helping the group reach its goal can place a small donation in the clearly marked jars at these generous businesses: Grounded, Waits News, Old World Bakery, Otter Books, Dominion Café, Vienna Café, Still Eagle, Pixie Candy Shoppe, Secret Garden Toys, Ellison’s, Reo’s Videos,  Gaia Rising, and Canadian 2 for 1 Pizza.

As well as bake sales and donations for the CLWR, the school will be offering yard services to the community.  Students will shovel snow off driveways. Payment is by donation, and all proceeds will be put toward the goal to raise money for the CLWR.

If you are interested in the service,  email Josie Day at jocelynday101@hotmail.com and leave your name, address, phone number, and the date you would like them to work.
