A HUGE Thank you to ALL of you for your contributions to our 12 Days of Christmas Giving Challenge!

Over the course of the 12 school days, starting December 1st, Birchview Dunes donated over 3700 items for the food bank, that is over 1000 items more than we have ever collected!!! Together with Worsley and St. Noel Chabanel we delivered 11,600 items to the Wasaga Ministerial Food Bank yesterday!!! There was more food than they could find room for, boxes were stacked to their ceiling! The volunteers at the food bank were very grateful to accept the largest single donation they have ever received!

The Mayor of Wasaga Beach heard about all our efforts and has asked us to relay a message from him, he is proud of the schools and all the students for their efforts throughout this food drive. 

This was also a friendly challenge between Wasaga's 3 schools to see who could raise the most items per student, and it was a very close call between all 3 schools, but the school with the highest number of items per student was St. Noel Chabanel with 8.6 items per student!!! However, in the end it's the community that has won this year with the over 11,600 items delivered to the food bank!

Thank you to the students for their contributions, to the student leaders who helped collect food throughout the challenge, to the grade 8's who helped load the food into the trailer, and to the volunteers who gave their time to sort, count and box every day for 12 days! We couldn't have pulled of this outstanding result without all of you!

"During the holidays, no child or parent, no family or individual should ever be hungry."

What a way to end 2017! Wishing you all a very happy holiday season!

Sincerely, Birchview Dunes School Council
