Fulton students collecting food

A bus will be parked outside the Okanagan Landing Plaza, by Buy Low Foods Thursday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Clarence Fulton students are driving an initiative to collect a bus-load of food for the less fortunate.

A bus will be parked outside the Okanagan Landing Plaza, by Buy Low Foods Thursday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. while students promote the event with signs and bells.

“A certain portion of our food donations are picked up by the Salvation Army,” said Sarah Orr, Fulton’s leadership class executive member.

“In addition, we collect food donations from our school during the week to help families in our community and our school.”

In an effort to fill the bus, the school is urging everyone in the community to come help them fill the bus for those in need.

“This year, we are trying to involve other members of the community more than we have in the past,” said Orr.
