LETTERS: EMCS students congratulated for 10,000 efforts

Re: Sooke 10,000 Tonight food drive a massive success (Online, Dec. 13)

On Dec. 12, I had food items waiting by the door for pick up by students from EMCS, but when I saw that the weather was so miserable I thought that perhaps they would still be sitting there the next morning.

I was so impressed to have a student from EMCS knock on the door to ask for food donations. It was dark, pouring rain and he was soaking wet, and I am sure there were a lot of places where he would rather be. But there he was taking time to help the less fortunate of our community.

It’s a wonderful thing that these students and volunteers do, and congratulations to them for breaking their food collection record.

We are lucky to have young people like this in our community, their efforts really make a difference to people and they are thinking of others rather than themselves.

So congratulations EMCS on your successful food drive, thank you so much for your efforts and I hope next year will be another record breaker.
