Alberni Bulldogs aid with ADSS food drive

ADSS leadership students will be helped on their Christmas food drive by AV Bulldogs players on Saturday, Dec. 10.

The Alberni District Secondary School leadership class concludes its annual Christmas food drive this weekend with a little help from the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.

Students from the leadership class will be collecting food at the Bulldogs’ game this Saturday, Dec. 10 (7 p.m. puck drop). They are asking people to bring non-perishable food items to the game and drop them in the bin provided. Food will be delivered to the Bread of Life and Salvation Army.

The food drive kicked off at the school last week.

“It’s something that happens every year,” said Chanelle Clement, a member of the leadership class.

The class takes on the food drive as a way to become involved in community service, student Brandy Watson said.

There are 24 students in the leadership class.

“Partnering with the Bulldogs makes people more aware and there’s more opportunity to get involved,” Clement said.
