Gallery: Houston Secondary School food bank drive

Houston Secondary School (HSS) students did a food bank drive around the community collecting non-perishable food items and donations to go to families in need for this year’s Christmas hampers organized by the Houston Salvation Army thrift store. Around 60 to 70 grocery bags in donations was collected by the students. “Over 30 students took part canvassing the community. They were greeting at houses with great community spirit. Many people donated last night even after they had donated at the Cram the Cruiser event,” said Ted Beck teacher at HSS. People can still donated money at Countrywide Printing or called Rachel Chapman, store supervisor of the Houston Salvation Army thrift store for more information at 250-877-1071. (Submitted photos)
