Twin Rivers students scared hunger

Twin Rivers Elementary students used Halloween as an opportunity to collect goods for the food bank.

Twin Rivers Elementary students scared hunger last week by trick-or-treating for food bank items rather than candy.

According to information submitted by Caitlyn and Luisa, “On Friday, October 30th, the entire Twin Rivers Elementary school collected food from North Castlegar for the food bank. Almost all students came dressed up in their outstanding Halloween costumes and went from house to house  in the pouring rain.Twin Rivers would like to give a great thanks to all the people in North Castlegar for donating food. Our efforts raised 1688.74 pounds of non perishable foods.”
