The Human Link Food Drive - Lord Beaverbrook School

Posted: November 29, 2016

On Thursday, November 24th.  Lord Beaverbrook School (LBS) held their 5th annual food drive for the Restigouche County Volunteer Action Association (RCVAA).

 In support of Family Violence Prevention Month, LBS in conjunction with other community schools formed a Human Link with students, staff and community members. The Human Link is a symbol of collective support and was formed from LBS to the Food Bank; donated items were passed from one person to another along the link.  Thank you to everyone who took part in this community project.  A special thank you to our community partners Atlantic Superstore, CKNB radio station and the Campbellton Tigers hockey team.   

The Human Link was a huge success again this year with LBS collecting 900 pounds of food valued at $2300.  LBS strives to engage our students to be active citizens, ready to lend a helping hand.  Way to go LBS!
