Our 3rd Service Saturday was on Febuary 25. Students had the opportunity to work at the Food Bank, the Salvation Army and Pacific Spirit Park.
Eight students initially signed up for the Food Bank but in the end, only one student was able to commit (many were busy with Wizard of Oz rehearsals). The one student who was able to attend was Grade 12 student Sally G.
Sally showed up at YHS at 8:30am on Saturday morning, went to the Food Bank for a 9am start and joined nine Senior boys from Saints for a morning of sorting donated items … enough to feed 500 families!
I was impressed by Sally’s commitment, hard work and ability to not be distracted by the boys (many dressed to impress!). So, a special thank you to Sally for her dedication to service for all the right reasons. For more information on volunteering and our next Service Saturday (April 28), please see Ms. Stanger.
