Teens drive hunger away with efforts

We Day inspires local youth to collect food for Food Bank

Candy wasn’t the only thing being given out this Halloween.

After attending ‘WE Day’ in Vancouver on October 13, an event designed ‘to inspire and celebrate the youth movement for global change’, a group of eight young ladies led by Keauna Miller from Ladysmith Secondary School Roots Club continued the movement by going door to door to collect non-perishable food items for the Ladysmith Food Bank.

The “Halloween for Hunger” campaign is part of the Free the Children mission created by Craig Kielburger.

As a parent of one of those teens, I’d like to congratulate them on their efforts and I’d also like to thank the people of Ladysmith for being so generous with their donations.  Their combined efforts resulted in a truck load of donated food.
