Maple Ridge secondary is hosting its annual drive-through food drive event next week in support of the Friends in Need Food Bank.
Kris Crawford, MRSS office staff, estimates the school has been organizing the event for about 10 years now.
“It’s a really big deal, not that it’s a competition, by any means. But there’s been a few years where we’ve been the Friends in Need [Food Bank’s] biggest donation.”
On Friday, Dec. 6, the community can ‘drive-thru’ the school parking lot at 21911 – 122 Avenue from 7:25 to 8:25 a.m., before the start of the school day, and donate non-perishable food items or make a cash donation.
