Windsong Wolves Pack up the Hunger

April is Windsong Heights School’s designated month to support our local food bank. The Airdrie Food Bank provides emergency food support to individuals and families in our communities. They provide hampers full of food, of which 44% go to children in our community. The Grade 2s, the leadership students, and the Food Drive committee will be leading and organizing our school-wide initiative. Last year, we collected 2.3 tonnes worth of donations. The goal this year is to help our local community by sending in donations and to reach/beat last year's record since we've gotten bigger.

Each “wolf pack” will have an assigned day for donations. Please mark down your child’s designated day to bring items in to school. We have added a friendly competition to the event. The wolf pack with the most donations (variety and weight) will win a prize.

Food Bank pickup dates:

Tuesday, April 9th 12:50 PM

Friday, April 12th at 10 AM

*Please donate with expiry dates in mind - if you wouldn’t eat it, don’t donate it.*

Please look at the items the food bank needs. The food bank is currently running low on the following items:

* Baby needs: diapers (size 4,5,6), wipes, baby formula/food

* Rice

* Canned fish/meat (salmon, tuna, chicken, ham etc.)

* Canned fruit, vegetables and soup

* Canned tomatoes

* Dry pasta

* Honey, Jam, syrup

* Baking items (flour, sugar, sugar free items, cake mixes, oats etc.)

* Pancake mix

* Rice and noodle side dishes (Uncle Bens, Sidekicks)

* Bathroom supplies: shampoo, soap, tissue, toothpaste, toilet paper, facial tissue

* Milk and milk alternatives (almond, rice, soy etc.)

* Canned and powdered milk

* Snack items (tuna & crackers, peanut free and non-dipped granola bars, spreadable cheese & cracker packs)

* Fruit juice, tea, coffee, orange juice (1 litre boxes), juice boxes 250 ml (no sugar added)

Please help Windsong Wolf Packs to help our community food bank and support the wolves as they pack up the hunger in our community!
