EMCS fundraisers collects items for Sooke Food Bank

Edward Milne Community School students collected 13, 543 food items last night during 10,000 Tonight.

Students from EMCS, Royal Bay and Belmont secondary schools take part in the event as a fundraiser for the Sooke and Goldstream food banks. It’s the largest school-based non-perishable food drive in Greater Victoria.

It’s called 10,000 Tonight because that’s how many items students hoped to collect.
