ADSS Athletic Department to hold annual food drive

Alberni District Secondary School will be collecting donations on Wednesday, Dec. 6

The Alberni District Secondary School Athletic Department will be holding their annual food drive next week.

The Athletic Department has been holding the food drive every year that they have been at the new school. This year, the food drive will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 6 from 5-7:30 p.m.

Athletic director Mike Roberts warns that upwards of 300-400 students could be out on the streets that night, knocking on doors for donations.

The students will take whatever they gather back to the school, where they will fill the waiting Salvation Army truck.

“It’s substantial, to say the least,” said Roberts.

For those who live in remote or rural areas, donations will be accepted at the school that evening.

“We can take whatever food items people want to bring,” said Roberts.
