Nearly $11,000 raised for Lethbridge Food Bank in Tri-High Food Drive

A donation of around $11,000 is headed to the Lethbridge Food Bank. The Tri-High Food Drive is an initiative by students from Winston Churchill, Chinook High School, and the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. The schools joined forces to raise food and cash donations. Chinook High School took top spot in the competition with students collecting 752 pounds of food along with $4,614 in monetary donations. Students from Chinook High School talked about the importance of helping out those in need during the Christmas season.

“It gives like a sense of community, especially to Chinook and students here. The fact that everyone came together and brought food, it’s just a really heartwarming moment,” states Dana Omar, a grade 9 student at Chinook High School.

“If I was one of those families in need, I would want people to donate for me and other people as well. So it’s really good to promote it. And it just felt really good. Also again, like she said, the sense of community. We all came together and did the same thing,” says Olivia Skarra, a grade 11 student at Chinook High School.
