Kids throughout Castlegar set a fine example for us grown-ups this year, showing the true spirit of Christmas by raising money and collecting food and toys for the Castlegar Firefighters’ Toy Drive and the Community Harvest Food Bank to help neighbours in need this holiday season.Kinnaird Elementary School students in Ms. Bryden’s and Ms. McDicken’s Grade 2 classes held cupcake/muffin sales in December and raised over $400.  Both classes then went on a shopping spree at Canadian Tire to shop for toys.The toys were then donated to the Castlegar Fireman’s Toy Drive.

We also had a pizza day and made $125 for the food drive. This is Ms. Stephen’s class loading the 1,058 food items and the $125 cheque into a truck to be transported to the Community Harvest Food Bank.
