LETTER: EMCS students earn Sooke Food Bank kudos

Weekly letters to the editor from within the Sooke community.

Re: EMCS students break own record for Sooke Food Bank drive (News, Dec. 7)

Wow, what amazing contributions of food and community spirit we’ve been receiving lately at the Sooke Food Bank.

There are so many organizations out there coming together to help us this season.

We have to, though, make special mention of the Edward Milne Community School students, staff and parents who worked so hard and brought us more than 11,000 items to help replenish our shelves. It’s a great group of young people – many of them even came back to the food bank the day after the drive to help sort and stack.

We are very grateful to EMCS and to the people of Sooke for their ongoing generosity.
