St. Raphael Students Hold Canned Food Drive

Students at St. Raphael Catholic Elementary were given a challenge. For a two week period, the students were asked to collect cans and other non-perishable food items for donation to the Sudbury Foodbank. At the end of the collection period, the grand total of cans was over 3600 and Vice Principal Anastasia Rioux was very proud. “Although the students were given a pizza party incentive, they all recognized that they were doing this for the greater good.” Rioux said. The students collected from family, friends and neighbours and the food drive was a St. Raphael student council initiative. The class that collected the most cans was Ms. Moretta’s Grade 4 class which brought in a total of 603 cans.
