Food and Winter Clothing Drive

Dear BFPS Community:

We wanted to let you know about two ways we are trying to help the community over the next three weeks.

Food Donations

We will be continuing our annual tradition of collecting food donations for the Thornhill United Church.  The Church then puts all of the food into baskets and delivers it to those in need in the Thornhill area.  The most useful items to donate are listed below:

 tinned soups, meat, fish, pasta sauce, fruit and vegetables, cereals packaged soup mix, pasta,   rice, sugar, flour, muffin mix, jello and pudding  jam, pickles, mustard, tea, coffee, hot chocolate,   cookies and chocolate

Please check expiry dates on food before sending as we cannot use and must throw out any expired items.

Winter Clothing Drive

We are sure you have heard about the 25,000 Syrian refugees who are coming to Canada over the coming months.  10,000 of them will be here by the end of December.  Many of these refugees are coming to the Greater Toronto area and they will not be prepared for our winter.  Therefore, we will be collecting gently used (or new) clothes to help them out.  Winter clothing is preferable, but all donations will of course be gratefully accepted.
All food and clothing donations will be accepted until
Wednesday, December 16th, 2015.

Yours truly,

The Staff at Bayview Fairways Public School
