We did it. 1,600 food items were collected by the families of St. Charles to fill the food pantry at Doncare. These food items will go to those in Manningham who are struggling to feed their families.
The C.E.O. of Doncare, Doreen Stoves wrote:
“A huge thank you to the staff, families and children of the St Charles Borromeo community who have taken part in the winter food drive for Doncare over the past few weeks. Such generosity shown from a school that is small in size and numbers is truly amazing. It is heart-warming to see the children so proudly giving food and thinking of others who are less fortunate. Special thanks to the senior students who helped Doncare staff carry the donated food into our overloaded vehicles. Such a large amount and variety of non-perishable food items will support a significant number of local families experiencing financial hardship during the colder months as they struggle to stay warm and their utility bills also rise. Thank you all once again for your continued generosity and support of the disadvantaged in the Manningham community through Doncare.”
