Thanksgiving Food Drive – October 7, 2021

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me…The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”   –  St. Matthew

The community of Good Shepherd CES  will once again be partnering with the Newmarket Food Pantry to assist families in need during this season of gratitude for all of God’s blessings. We will be participating in a Thanksgiving One Day Fall Food Drive on October 7, 2021.

On October 7th, bins will be placed outside the entrance of the school from 8 am until 3:30pm. Collection bins will also be placed at the end of the Kiss’n Ride area, during morning drop off, for your convenience as well. We will also have bins inside the school foyer where students can drop off donation items.

Families are encouraged to place a bag of food and/or personal hygiene items in the Food Bank Bins.

Please ensure that you maintain physical distancing to ensure your personal well being as well as wearing a mask once you are on school property.

Kindly note that all bins will be held in a 5-day quarantine by the Vaughan Food Bank prior to being handled by their volunteers.

Items Requested:

  • All Canned or dry food items eg. Canned fruit, vegetables, beans, rice, cereal, and so on

  • All Toiletries as well as paper products.

Thank you all for your continued support and generosity.
