Delview Secondary School is set for its 21st annual Thanks For Giving food drive, which takes place tonight (Thursday).
Students will be canvassing neighbourhoods in North Delta and Surrey from 5-9:30 p.m. on Oct. 10 to collect non-perishable food items for Deltassist Family and Community Services and the Surrey Food Bank.
“Thanks For Giving is the largest single-day food drive in all of British Columbia, and last year we shattered previous records by collecting over 18,000 canned goods in under three hours,” said Tiana Gordon, Student Council Presidential Advisor.
“We would like to thank the Delta and Surrey communities for their continued support of this amazing event.”
More than 500 students and community volunteers are expected to participate. Check out a video from last year’s event: Thanks for Giving 2012.
