Food Bank Efforts
by Olivia Johnson - Wednesday, 5 August 2015, 10:05 PM
 

Today we collected 867 items of non-perishable food.  Unfortunately, we did not reach our target of 1000, but as a school Mount Maunganui College made a really valuable contribution.  In addition to this, we raised $540.40 which would buy us more than enough cans to reach the 1000 mark anyway!  Congratulations to everyone who participated, your efforts were much appreciated by Food Bank, and your contribution is sure to help a family in need.
