YWCA Youth Give Back To Community Through Food Drive

foodCaptureA BIG thanks to the grade 7 students of Sexsmith School enrolled in the YWCA‘s after school programs ‘Welcome To My Life‘ and ‘Boys For Real!’  Leaders Amanda and Annina challenged the group to coordinate a community service project that allowed them to give back to the community.  The group chose to organize a food drive for The Salvation Army Vancouver Community & Family Services ‘Emergency Food Assistance Program:’ Food hampers are available to low-income families with children under 19, living in Vancouver and Burnaby.  Eligible families are able to receive this service during an emergency, or once every 90 days (maximum 3 times per year).  Hampers usually consist of items, such as: soup, beans, peanut butter, tuna, vegetables, fruit, macaroni, rice, instant noodles, bread, cheese and margarine (quantities depend on family size).  Call 604-872-7676 to schedule an appointment.  Please note that this service is not a food bank.  Instead, its aim is to provide families with enough food until they receive their next income or visit the food bank (for more information please phone 604-876-3601 or visit www.foodbank.bc.ca).

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
