Lumby backs Bloom

The recent drive-thru breakfast held by Charles Bloom Secondary’s Grade 12 class raised $3,800

There was strong community support for Lumby students.

The recent drive-thru breakfast held by Charles Bloom Secondary’s Grade 12 class raised $3,800 in two-and-a-half hours.

“The proceeds are going towards the safe grad event in May,” said Bill Grahn, one of the organizers.

“The students, along with volunteer parents, were kept busy waving their signs and serving breakfast to those who stopped. From the loggers who pulled over with their trucks, the local businesses who placed pre-orders, and the general public heading off to work, a great big thank you for your generous donations and support for our grads.”

The event was possible because of businesses who donated food, coffee, and other items. They are Super A Foods, Connect Coffee Shop, Tim Hortons, Fields, Irly Bird Lumber, Monashee Dental, the Lumby Wildlife Club, Kal Tire, JPW Road and Bridge, Save On Foods, Kiss FM, Lumby Valley Times and The Morning Star.
