NPSS students take on a Halloween challenge


Local high school students will be on the prowl for more than candy this Halloween.

A group of students from North Peace Secondary School will be going door to door requesting items to donate to the local food bank.

The Student Advisory Team at the school will be collecting food donations for the Salvation Army Food Bank, says Craig Brownlee, Vice Principal at the high school.

Although the total amount of food to be collected isn’t known, he says the students are hoping to collect as much as possible, which could be anything from 300 items to 3,000.

He says this is the first year this specific group chose to take on the project and decided to register with Free the Children, a not-for-profit organization in Canada.

The organization has a campaign called ‘Halloween for Hunger’ and keeps track of which schools across the country participate to donate food to their local food banks.
