Christmas Cheer Campaignhttp://hew.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/3Christmas Cheer Campaign<p>The Outreach Team would like to thank everyone who participated in our Thanksgiving Food Drive.  The support had been tremendous and so appreciated!  </p><p>Once again, The Outreach Team will be running the Christmas Cheer Campaign. Please note these important stats:  </p><p style="text-align:center;">"<em>In 2013, we assisted over 1,829 families (4,969 people) with:  groceries for a full Christmas dinner, a turkey, packaged food for a week, gift vouchers, toys for each child and gift cards for each teen."</em> </p><p>The pick-up date for toys and food items will be <strong>Tues., Dec. l6th.  It</strong><strong> is not far away!</strong></p><p>We were given this list of <em>the most needed items</em> for the food hampers:</p><p style="text-align:left;"><strong>1.  Canned Foods:  </strong>meats, fish, soups, spaghetti/tomato sauce, veggies, fruit, pork and beans, stews, spaghetti or ravioli, puddings and canned dinners.</p><p style="text-align:left;"><strong>2.  Packaged Foods: </strong> boxed cereal, pasta, spaghetti or rice (boxed not bagged) macaroni & cheese dinners, cookie or muffin mixes, Jello and puddings, dry soups and meals and candy. (Please no glass containers!)</p><p style="text-align:left;"><strong>3.  New, unwrapped toys - </strong>they often end up with fewer toys for babies and for 8-10 year olds - donations to these age groups would be appreciated.</p><p style="text-align:left;"><strong>4.  New books – for all age levels.</strong></p><p style="text-align:left;"><strong>5.  Canadian Tire Money</strong></p><p style="text-align:left;"><strong>6.  Mittens, hats and scarves for our tree – </strong>these items can be easily placed in the food hampers and are greatly needed.</p><p style="text-align:left;"><strong>7.</strong>  Please note that we will also be collecting and distributing <em><strong>gently used</strong></em><strong> snowsuits and snowpants. </strong>We will have a table set up for these items near the Christmas tree in the foyer. </p><p style="text-align:left;">Thank you once again, Hewitt's Creek for showing generosity and empathy for the Barrie Community.  As the Christmas Cheer letter said, "We count on the schools for most of the food and toys that we provide to families each year".</p><p style="text-align:left;">~ The Outreach Team</p>
