Helping Hands - Donating to the Valatie Food Pantry

For several years, we at the Primary School have had a weekly collection for the Valatie Food Pantry to assist our friends in the community who may need a helping hand. It has been a huge success, and the Food Pantry counts on us to help keep their shelves full throughout the year!

Won't you please consider picking up an extra item or two each week to put in the collection box in the lobby? Pick up is every Friday! It's a great way to teach your child about generosity and helping others in our own community. View the flyer
