Gerry Beltgens Special to the Chronicle

Volunteers from Oceanview Church stepped in from the snow to spend the morning with students in the Ladysmith Senior Secondary kitchen baking 600 cookies for a Valentines Day Cookie Fest for everyone at the school.

Oceanview also provides fresh fruit and sandwiches on a regular basis for students who come to school without lunches.

“It is a part of our outreach to the community,” said Lori Phillips, who is also the wife of Pastor Darin Phillips. “We believe it is important to think outside of the box and we love supporting the school and the students.”

School administration is very happy about the level of support from the community.

“We have had an amazing group of volunteers up at LSS helping to feed our students and show that their community cares about them,” said Dave Travers, the LSS principal.
