Food Drive Update


We’re off to a great start with our Food Drive in support of the Vaughan Food Bank.  But we still need your help!  We’d ask all our Bakersfield families to take a few minutes to go through your pantries and do some Fall cleaning.  It’s likely that there are items you have sitting in your cupboards that may go unused –but could very much help a local family in need.  Our community has a long tradition of generous giving.  We ask you to demonstrate this charitable spirit once more, and help us fill our bins and boxes to ensure that no Vaughan residents are hungry this season.

The most requested items from the food bank include (a) canned food items such as soups, fruit, vegetables, juices, pasta sauces etc., (b) cereals hot & cold, biscuits, crackers, cookies, cake mixes, pancake mixes etc., (c) toiletry items such as hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, razors, hair shampoos, paper hand towels, hair creams, cosmetics etc., (d) Kraft dinners and all types of pasta, (e) glass items such as pickles, sauces, jams, relishes, salad dressings etc., and (f) baby diapers, sizes 3 to 6.

We will continue to collect items through the first week of November; items can be sent to school with your child or dropped off in the school foyer, at your convenience.  Together we can work to help Vaughan families in need!
