10,000 Tonight Food Drive
The EMCS Leadership Program is happy to once again join forces with both Belmont Secondary School and Royal Bay Secondary School this year for our district-wide 10,000 Tonight Food Drive.
Belmont started this drive a number of years ago, and it has become the Western Communities’ largest food drive, providing much-needed support to local food banks. With 3 secondary schools now in the district, a challenge was put forth last year to broaden the event even further, with the schools hosting their own drive in order to collect 10,000 non-perishable food items each… in one night. Last year, the three schools collected 13,000!
Unfortunately, EMCS needs to run our part of the food drive on a different night, but is still remaining a major part of the overall event. EMCS’s 10,000 Tonight Food Drive will be on Thursday, Dec. 1, with Belmont and Royal Bay’s food drive on Wednesday, Dec. 7. Both evenings will be from 5-9pm.
All donations can be dropped off from Nov. 28 to Dec. 1 in the EMCS office. Donations dropped off on the night of the event can be brought to the EMCS foyer. All of the food collected through EMCS will be going to support the Sooke Food Bank.
For more information, or if you would like to volunteer for the event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well, Leadership is back in full swing already. Our ‘first’ event is already upon us: Cops-For-Cancer Spin-A-Thon, taking place Thursday, September 22, from 7am – 7pm. This is a fundraising event, where the spin bikes, set up in the Commons, start spinning at 7am and don’t stop until 7pm. It’s an incredible team-building, community-building, and energy-building event, and a blast for all involved.
Todd, Laura, and EMCS Leadership
Saturday September 24th from 10am-2pm
The money raised will go to Cops for Cancer and the Leadership Class for school and community events.
